About the tour

For 100 years, the heart of Montreal's largest cultural community has beaten loudest in this neighbourhood. Trendy cafés, yards overflowing with vegetables and fruit trees, prize-winning cannoli, and Canada's largest outdoor farmer's market contribute to making Little Italy a popular destination for visitors and Montrealers alike. Fran will take you on a memorable stroll in this area where the laid-back (think sports bars) and the jet set (think Ferrari) meet, where soccer is one of life's essentials, and the air is scented with the tantalizing smell of tomato sauce. Mamma mia!

Meet Françoise Bâby

Françoise Bâby

The two most frequently asked questions Fran, a certified guide, hears on her tours are whether she is a native Montrealer and what her favourite “thing” about her city is. The answer to the first question is “yes”, and the answer to the second is “multiculturalism”, which, in her view, best defines Montreal. Sharing her enthusiasm and bragging about Montreal with visitors are what it’s all about. Although she has a penchant for great food (her mother is French after all!), history and architecture, what she enjoys most about guiding is the interaction with participants on her tours! Her wish is that you come away not so much with a tour or a lecture, but with a memorable experience.

It was excellent but I lost the image and sound so many times, thus I missed a lot. :-( Probably because I used Safari??? Chrome would have been better??? And any suggestions for the next trip?? Thanks very much!
