    The Notre-Dame Basilica was built in 1656 and is known for its intricately designed high alter & choirs stalls. The church also features stained glass recalling the history of the city.

    You can take the 747 bus to downtown for around $10. Look for the 747 signs past the taxi exits; you can buy a ticket at the machine there, using either cash or credit.

    If you are staying on a weekend, buy the SMT 3-day pass for $18 for unlimited rides on the Metro & 747 bus Friday-Sunday. One way ride on 747 cost $10, so the 3-day pass is a better deal !!!

    Vieux-Montreal is a beautiful area of "old town." Here you can take a Caleche (horse-drawn) carriage ride, visit the art galleries, museums, shops and try French food.

    Free wifi, great restaurants and shop! Very stylish airport and you can take the bus 747, direct to downtown of Montreal for 8$ or free with monthly CAM! Use Nexus to avoid line!

    Best way to get into town: buy a public transport ticket (machines available at arrivals, close to exits) and take the 747 bus. Get off at the first stop, the Lionel Groulx metro station.

    Free wifi, VERY comfy p/leather chairs, efficient border patrol (though Mexicans, Canadians, and Americans should be able to travel in N America borderlessly). Chill vibe.

    The Timmy's is in the arrival area, so those departing passengers who want a Timmy before they fly, make sure you stop by the arrivals. Famous downtown Vasco de gama cafe has a branch in departures

    Get ready for a LONG walk into customs if you're arriving from the U.S. If you're connecting to another flight, security is surprisingly quick for a large airport. Grab your Tim Hortons before hand!

    MBco located by the check-in counter b4 you go through security is quite possibly some of the best airport food I've had. Moderately priced but delicious and nicely presented. Try chicken brie wrap.

    If you have an early flight, security opens at 4:00 so be there on time since lines to get trough are huge once they open ... And bring your snack all the outlets open at 5am!

    With Swiss you can have your bags shipped to your final destination when you take a train from Zurich. You will not have to pick them up in Zurich & go directly to the train. They will follow later.

    the marriot hotel is right in the airport and is actually quite beautiful, free wifi in the bar, lots of light and places to hang about if you've got a delay or some time before catching a flight

    Remember, if flying back to the US, you clear customs here so get here early. The airport offers many amenities including a MEXX, so plan to shop some more. Yeehaw!

    Keep your boarding pass handy you will have it scanned 7! times from the check-in to leaving security. In a 10ft radius they scan your pass 3 times, govt inefficiency at it's best & don't feel safer.

    If your flight is delayed & you feel fancy, try the balnéa corner by gate C81 (US departures). The chair massages will keep your spirits up.

    Trudeau is a clean, easily accessible airport with free WiFi. You can save on taxi fares by traveling to the nearest Métro station.

    An Uber RestoBar is beautiful. @Gate 53. Nice latin music sets up the mood prior to my flight to Cozumel! Although air here smells gas and pollution from outside. Bad air-conditioning.

    Two awesome things: free wifi in the airport & the 747 express bus that for 8 CAD you do Airport to Lionel-Groulx Metro Station and vice-versa.

    Leaving Montréal? Go near gate C79 and get yourself a bag or two of St-Viateur bagels at the bagel bar and distribute them to your friends at your destination. They'll thank you.

    Tatami sushi bar is now on the other side of the international gates. If you're flying @westjet pick up your food at gates 1-15 before you come over this way. Only option here now is Second Cup.

    New self scan machine really speeds up customs but leads to a huge build up leaving baggage claim. Pack light and take only carry ons. 747 express bus is inexpensive $8 or free depending on Opus card

    Get there early, as you have to pass through US immigration here rather than at the other end. That line alone can easily take 45 minutes.

    For transborder flights, U.S. Customs pre-clearance is a breeze out of Montréal (as opposed to Toronto-Pearson), just aim for a late morning or early afternoon departure when the queues are lightest.

    If you are flying to the United States from a connecting flight in Canada, look for the connections line in customs. The signs for it are easy to miss and the wait is much shorter.

    Bringing bagels through customs? They will take your cream cheese. Eat or drop your cream cheese before going through security.

    If you have a long layover: usually there is one terminal that's very quiet, so walk around and get some rest

    Take 747 bus to get to the airport. The service is really efficient. If you have the monthly bus ticket (opus card) you can use it.

    Get there early if you have to go through US Customs. Some days you just flow through and days like today it is just a nightmare!

    I think YUL has the most comfy chairs compared to other airports. Definitely look for the few reclined chairs scattered around.

    Embarassingly small airport considering the size of the city and the presence of the IATA world HQ, but at least it's classy and cozy (except the baggage pickup area)

    The Maple Leaf lounge is very comfortable. Just be sure to fly business class on Canada Air. Or be Star Alliance Gold )

    When you have to get there too early, you can have some fresh rest outside in front of international arrivals.

    Since the mandatory US budget cuts the customs wait times have doubled. Add another 45 minutes to your arrival time if you are traveling to the US

    Stick to only flying with porter whenever traveling to Toronto. No line ups, great customer service and when u book early great prices. You'll never go back to pearson again

    If your staying at a hotel, I highly recommend using the 747 Shuttle Bus Service from the airport. It's only $8 and much cheaper than a cab.

    Park at the Via Rail long-term parking. It's open 24/7 and more affordable than the airport parking. The shuttle comes often and is free.

    Remember to place your valuables IN your CARRY ON when passing through security. This way you avoid "loosing" precious stuff to the passenger either in front or behind you!!!
