Another way of discovering the city's neighbourhoods
Montréal en métro, a Ulysses travel guide
Montreal, September 24, 2007 - The Montréal métro, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in fall 2006, provides both a world to discover through the art work and originality of each station, as well as a privileged means of exploring the city’s neighbourhoods. Thus, as a way of enticing people into viewing the city in a different way, from the métro, Ulysses recently published a new city guide, Montréal en métro, in collaboration with Société de transport de Montréal (STM).
The guide unveils the works of art that grace the different métro stations, including the three new stations in Laval, and describes each one’s architectural style. But the guide goes even further, leading readers to discover the main attractions close to each station. Making these sightseeing excursions even more appealing, Montréal en métro also suggests an eclectic mix of caf�s and restaurants where readers can take a well-deserved break, as well as a selection of boutiques for the best window-shopping. Moreover, exploring the area around each métro station is meade easy and pleasant thanks to the numerous, detailed plans featured in the guide. An unusual and amusing way of discovering the city’s neighbourhoods!
The Montréal métro turned 40 in October 2006 and was extended to Laval in April 2007. Those facts alone are reason enough to rediscover this unique underground network thanks to an equally unique guide. Available from Ulysses and in bookstores, the Montréal en métro travel guide is the perfect companion for seeing and exploring the city from a different perspective.
