You're right, it is big enough, especially if our conference activities are plentiful. There's an excellent transit system, half of it underground; during winter some people can go from home to work with just a street to cross without the use of winter clothing. There's also underground shopping. There are a few museums, great festivals during summer time, we could rent transport for nature outings. What I meant is that three days in Montreal and you've done most there is to do. I think those activities are important because after the conference activities we'll go out together and have fun.
Did I mention good eating? Yeaaaah!
