Although we didn't take the Longueuil Ferry mentioned above the old port is very interesting to visit. A bit like anywhere in the world with a port there are terrible tourist restaurants and bars as well as quality, but very expensive ones, so we just went for a walk to take in the views. Would recommend visiting the port, simply... More

Terrific place to visit, as a tourist and a local. So much to see and regardless of the season. We celebrated my 8 yr old sons birthday Ice Fishing in the old port this march. It was brilliant! Right in the st Lawrence, under the Jaques Cartier bridge, there we were ice fishing! From ferries, to horse drawn carriage rides... More

From the old port of Montreal, you can take your bike or just go by foot on a small ferry and cross over to the South shore of the city. Cost is under 12$. The ride itself is easy, mostly flat throughout once you're on the south shore. The differents views of Montreal are breathaking. You can easily vary you... More

This feel a little like Europe... but it has its own soul... it is great for walking visiting, eating in restaurants... see some history or the numerous performing artists in the street... especially during the summer season...

We spent a number of hours at the Old Port walking along the river looking at the shops on the pier and the people enjoying the water. There was a cruise ship at the dock which added to the ambiance. There was a lively atmosphere and we enjoyed ourselves.

Part of old Montreal, cobble stone roads and laneway, it is so beautiful when you see it in sunshine or when its lit up in evening. Catch a bite in the local restaurants, enjoy a bowl of ice cream or sit down and listen to local jazz performance. It's very much the way you can imagine how Montreal life would... More

Old Port of Montréal has so many activites to do. Suggest you rent a bike and just bike around. Than take the ferry with your bike on the Longueuil Ferry and take the bike trail. Just beautiful and its an excellent adventure.

I found the Old Port of Montreal and Old Montreal blended....but one adds equally to the other. They have done a good job of making the waterfront accessible to the public and drawing people down there. Parking is good; there is a lot to do; acitvities for the kids; on water activities available also. It's worth the trip

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
