We enjoyed our trip both to Montreal and back to Toronto. The Via staff are very helpful and our service was excellent. We travelled business class. The food served was very very good. The temperature in the train was cool, I would suggest a jacket.

This station is at the bottom of McGill College Av, along Place Ville-Marie, and within the underground city. It is steps away from the TCV. It connects you to places.

Everything in Montreal was lovely. Amtrak had brought us there and we stayed several days, enjoying the city and its sites. Beautiful town.

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
