This is the place where you'll think you are in Europe. Small streets, european charm! It is absolutely beautiful. But be aware of the restaurants, mosto of them are tourist traps, too expensive in this part of town. In the summer go to the rooftops, they have the best views!

It was a wonderful trip to Old Montreal. Took the trip on a hop/on, hop/off bus. Worth it. Liked all of this area. Make sure you get the history of it to enjoy it even more.

We walked through the Chinese Quarter into Old Montreal and enjoyed the unique and quaint shops selling artesian and unusual merchandise. There were plenty of restaurants and bistros and sightseeing points and it made for a delightful few hours.

you cannot help but appreciate life 300+ years ago. The historoy and architecture is breathtaking. Due to it's vintage, be careful. St Paul Street is very uneven and most stores are not wheelchair or stroller friendly.

A number of interesting sights in a such a small area. Old Port, Bonsecours Market, Notre Dame Basillica, all within a short walk of each other.

While cute for a quick walk, nearly the whole Old Montreal is one big tourist trap. There are better areas in the city to visit.

You can really spend a great deal of time wandering the streets of old Montreal. There's plenty of shops though quite a few redundancies along the way. The only drawback is it's charm is currently hampered by a great deal of construction and maintenance work, but still worth the diversion.

Two days in old Montreal was a perfect short get away for two friends. Wearing your most comfortable walking shoes to wander the cobblestone streets. There are many coffee shops so stop in for something maple. Walk some more and wander in and out of the many art galleries and shops. Tips: walk old Montreal during the day and in... More
