I always love to go there when the weather allows it. You can walk & bring your lunch so you can eat by the river. You can eat at the bars & restaurants there too if you want. I've never done it though I usually bring my food and enjoy eating by the small lakes or the river. In summer... More

A nice place to walk through as you tour Old Montreal. The street performers are entertaining and it is historically important to this city.

There's not much more I can say about it: it is a walk-on (or bike-on) ferry and it does offer nice views of the city. I wish they had a special return fare, because I find $15 for the round trip ($7.50 each way) pricey for a 15-minute crossing; otherwise, I'd be willing to take it more often.

I have been going to Montreal for the Formula one race for the past 16 years with the exception of the one year when the race was cancelled. I experience 20 different methods of getting to / from the track. I've done the subway. I've done the taxi thing. We've been forced to walk across the bridge after the race... More

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...

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.
