Enjoy a lunch in the capital of the second-biggest country on the planet, Ottawa! Then it is off to Montreal. Bienvenue à Montreal!

But French is only one of 35 or so languages you will hear on the streets of this international island city of 1.6 million inhabitants (more than 3.6 million if you include the suburban neighborhoods). Characteristically, there'is the famous joie de vivre - the ineffable combination of spirit and ambiance Montrealers exude without even trying. You will see it in the summertime cappuccino-sippers cramming sidewalk cafes; in the long lines outside Schwartz's , home to the city's best smoked meat; and in the lovers holding hands on Mount Royal , the city's parkland mountain rising 264 meters (866 feet). What makes Montreal one of the world's truly great cities? It starts with its location. The island sits at the confluence of three rivers: the mighty St. Lawrence, the Rivière des Prairies and the Ottawa. Montrealers describe their streets as going north-south and east-west, but the island itself is askew, tilted to the northeast. All this and more is waiting for you to explore! Day 10 is a free day to enjoy the city on your own. Popular optional activities are cycling, jet boats and the famous theme park La Ronde (Six Flags).
