Old Town Montreal feels very safe, lots of bars and restaurants. WE ate in the area every night. Try and stay in a hotel near to it but not necessarily in it.

As I stated elsewhere, wonderful to see. Be careful because our beautiful hotel, Hotel Manoir Victoria did not have an elevator. Just dozens of step steps - even just to get to the lobby.

Lots of restaurants, bistros, shops, art galleries, and cobblestone streets to meander. All the shopkeepers were friendly and any place we stopped to eat was good. Don't need an agenda just enjoy the architecture, people and food!

A few streets of restaurants, and gift shops... very touristy but does have a local feel.
It was a good way to spend a few hours... and we really enjoyed it

This area is really nice to walk through, filled with cobbled streets and old buildings. There are a lot of great restaurants in the area and tourist shops

A really lovely area to wander around and people watch!
Some really lovely independent restaurants and shops - as well as the typical tourist trap ones, as mentioned below, that you would expect.

This is the one area of Montreal you just cannot miss, it is a maze of streets with a surprise around every corner, you can get lost in time, then walk into today, with the blink of an eye.

We spent about 3 days exploring Old Montreal, its architecture and its history. Some interesting shops but a lot of run of the mill tourist traps too.

Montreal really has a vibe of Europe. This is felt quite strongly as you tour around Old Montreal. It is touristy, yes, but it does maintain an authentic old world feel. I do think it is missing something. Perhaps it is that very few people actually live in this section of town.

Plenty of shops and restaurants to see and experience. Scenic streets to walk. Lots of stone structures. I would recommend taking a walking tour to help you point out things hidden in plain view. Unless you plan to enjoy some meals and visit a significant number of shops, I feel you can easily see all you want to see in half to 3/4 of a day.
