Come Fly With Me
Some couples will go to great lengths to demonstrate their love—or in this case, great heights. Montreal’s skyline is best seen cocktail in hand at the festive Terrasse Bonsecours, before which lays Old-Montreal and the Mont-Royal in the background. Just a bit further east stands the iconic Olympic Tower, which marks two big points on the romance charts: unobstructed views of the entire city and perfect sunset viewing platform, thanks to a western orientation and a slightly decentered location. Early-risers and active couples, on the other hand, will appreciate the trek up the Mont-Royal just in time for sunrise, which seems to align perfectly with the mountains of the southern shore of Montreal and the skyscraper-clad downtown area.
