Driving distance for the day: 157.7 Miles

A relatively short drive took us from Quebec City to Montreal, our last big city stop. Montreal definitely has the “big city” feel, but it still has its charm, especially in old town.

The biggest attraction is the Notre-Dame Basilica. The inside of the church is copiously decorated and the splendors and intricacies will take one’s breath away.

The stained glass panels depict stories from the Bible.

The outside of the church is also decorated with status of Jesus Christ and Saints.

The city itself also is also basked in its own brilliance at night, although perhaps not as charming as Quebec City.
