Let’s explore one of less know Montreal’s jewel, the Green Alleyways, or in French, ”ruelles vertes”, where you sometimes feel like being in the countryside while in the middle of a city.

We will explore the alleys on bike, so we can see more of them. If you do not have one, you can rent one at a Bixi station.

We will meet at Metro Station Rosemont

And we will frequently stop, in order to take photos.

Quote from the New York Times
“The back alleys of most cities are ugly, collecting puddles and trash. In Montreal, by contrast, they’ve been growing into surprisingly lovely neighborhood hubs, and more than Protected content of them have recently banded together as official Ruelles Vertes, or green alleyways. They feature gardens that give residents leafy space for trick-or-treating, block parties, pop-up restaurants and more. Now the alleys are not only providing gathering places, but also giving visitors back-door peeks into Montreal’s daily life.”
