Information about Montreal
Airport - Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport (IATA: YUL) (formerly Dorval Airport) is about half an hour west of the city centre on highway 20. Note that travel time to the airport from the city centre can be as much as an hour, depending on traffic. Montreal-Trudeau International Airport - is on the western part of the island. From the main terminal, exit onto the main access road and turn right.
Shopping - Rue Ste-Catherine, between rue Guy and boulevard St-Laurent, has many of the big department and chain stores as well as a few major malls. Avenue Mont-Royal has funky consignment and gothic clothing stores from boulevard St-Laurent to rue St-Denis, and a mixed bag of neighborhood stores, used record shops, and gentrified boutiques heading east towards avenue Papineau. Rue St-Viateur is one of the city's most interesting streets, with its amazingly varied range of businesses crammed into the short stretch between St-Laurent and avenue du Parc. Boul.
