Cirque du Soleil’s new show ECHO is a must-see for anyone that enjoys circus, live music and thrilling performance. Premiering April 20th, the show is a tale about evolution as well as the symbiotic relationships that our lives depend on.
It combines poetry, stagecraft, daring acrobatics, and technology to explore the delicate balance between people, animals, and the world we all share. This activity can be enjoyed amongst family, friends or with a partner.

The Big Top tent is a short 9 minute walk from Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel which makes this the perfect evening activity.

We highly recommended exploring Place Jacques-Cartier, a public square spanning two blocks that is lined with cafés and restaurants in the Old Port. It is also full of bustling street vendors, entertainers, painters and artists. This cobbled square is the perfect venue to observe all the old world charm that Old Montreal has to offer and enjoy a bite outside.
At night, the square becomes packed with both tourists and locals alike. Conveniently located just a few steps from our hotel in Old Montreal.
