Travel to Montréal along the St. Lawrence River
Details: Montréal tour director-led sightseeing
Students experience the city’s highest points and lowest depths, and everything in between. At the highest point, Saint Joseph’s Oratory rises majestically on Mont Royal. The church’s dome is second only to St. Peter’s in Rome. On the other end of the spectrum, students witness the double-decker city of Montréal – an underground city comprised of a series of tunnels and galleries connecting shops and restaurants.
Details: Notre-Dame Basilica visit
When he saw his church completed, the Protestant architect of the Notre Dame Basilica was so inspired that he converted to Catholicism. The blue-and-gold interior certainly is inspiring: practically every bit of the immense wooden church is covered in gold leaf. The imported stained-glass windows show the history of Montreal, further illustrated by the statues of famous residences outside. This famous Basilica helps demonstrate how the church played an important role in Canada’s history.
