The activities listed here include romantic walks through beautiful urban parks and stylish gardens found amongst Montreal's Jardin Botanique. A visit to the site of famous weddings, including that of Celine Dion inside Montreal's prettiest churches and peaceful architectural spaces allows you to be alone with your special someone - or feel like you are. Visit the Grande Bibliotheque with your intellectual equal or share some quiet alone time in one of many Montreal parks and green spaces or take in the private walking trails of Mont Royal. Stare into starry skies at the Planetarium under cover of darkness or take a romantic cruise aboard a quiet and environmentally sensitive vessel from the Old Port area of Montreal, near the cobble-stoned streets of Old Montreal - itself a good location for romantic bistros and restaurants. The recommendations listed here provide an ample variety of activities for all interests and in all seasons with a special focus on quality time shared with a loved one. All of these venues are perfect for first dates or marriage proposals and all romantic encounters in between.
