Great place to spend the day. Many excellent restaurants and bars. Don't worry if you don't speak French, as most staff also can speak English

A walk along the old port, you can also find horse & carriage rides. . Great stuff, if you can dodge all the roadworks etc, which was absolutely EVERYWHERE.! I would not advise driving around if you did not know the streets well, as the roads are dug up on almost every corner with delays everywhere, so it is much... More

Don't do this on a 90 degree day... but take some time to stroll along the river walk here. But there isn't really much to see... so do this if you are in the area but don't walk an extra mile for the experience.

If you have time, do take advantage of the river cruise, by Schooner, or by dinner or lunch cruise, it is a lovely experience.

Touristy, but pleasant. Food, shops in containers, the water to view, paths to stroll along, all clean and welcoming. There is a beach at the end which seemed a little odd, but clearly it is an Old Port popular feature.

The ferry runs certain days and hours. During the formula 1 race the schedule does not show all times and dates. On one day we were told it would be every half hour, but this was not the case. Claiming a broken ferry boat it was every hour. On the day after the race they said the ferry would run... More

We went to a restaurant in the old city and then we went for a walk in the Old Port. It was a beautiful summer evening. The area was full of people, and yet it was very peaceful and calm, and between the reflection of the lights in the water, and the little breeze, IT WAS MAGICAL.

We took the time to go and look at the port but when it is not a high tourism time there is really not a lot to see.

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.
