Old Montreal is beautiful and full of culture! I would recommend this to anyone travelling to Montreal as so much to do and see. You feel the history as you walk its cobblestone streets.

From the walking streets and cobblestone lanes to the multitude of enchanting cafés, bistros and fine dining rooms you simply can't make a wrong choice with, Old Montreal is like stepping into France 300 years ago along with all the modern conveniences. If you can't get to Europe, Old Montreal is a must-destination for couples looking for a romantic getaway.

We visit Montreal the first days of August with my husband and spent our first morning and noon in old Montreal.Is such a beautiful city! We stayed at plateau-Mont-royal, and it was really nice to walk to old Montreal ( a 20-30 min walk). Although it´s very touristic, the area is really awesome. The tiny streets, the buildings, the Notre-dome... More

quite touristy but the 3 brewers (tres berserk-something like that) has beer they brew that will refresh during your exploring. The maple sugar shop has great gelato and friendly service.

If visiting Montreal you need to really see old Montreal. Beautiful architecture - cobble stone roads, nice little boutiques. Unfortunately the stores are over priced but has the look and feel of being in Europe. Wish there were more open window cafes but everyone should walk and look around to experience old montreal.

Went back to old Montreal more than once, i can't get enough of cobblestone roads and the old buildings! Lots of people say it can be a tourist trap but i can see why. There were a couple shops filled with touristy items and many restaurants, but maybe its best just stay away from these and take in the sights.... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
