“I love Old Montreal”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I believe what makes Montreal unique is The Old Montreal.
The ideal time to visit the Old Montreal is in the summer (June or July). There's activities day and night; It's very romantic. It's the Montmartre of North America; the cobblestone streets, European architectures, café terrasses, bateau mouche, street performers, fine restaurants, bazars, gift-shops and jazz bar. If you like Paris then you must visit Montreal.

“Must see!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I love walking here, even in a cold day. There is a special vibe in this place!
There is so much to see and do and it doesn't matter if you do everything at once, it is one of those places that you can come back and have a different experience each time!

“Steeped in history!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

A beautiful part of the city, Old Montreal is my favourite place to go especially in summer, with its quaint cobbled streets, and local artists displaying their wares. Check out the art galleries, or take a tour in one of the pretty 'caleches' (horsedrawn carriage) and dont forget to stop to admire the street artists! A visit to the Montreal museum of Archaeology & History is a must, near the Old Port where you can discover Montreal's fascinating past. After all that walking there are numerous pavement restaurants where you can relax and watch the world go by, while you sample 'poutine' the national dish. Not to be missed!

“Old Montreal gives you a little taste of Europe-very charming!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

When visiting Montreal, make a point of exploring Old Montreal-afterall this is where the City began. Ther are plenty of great restaurants, clubs, and boutiques along the narrow cobble-stone streets. In the Summer there are plenty of shows, the most famous being Cirque du Soleil- where the newest of the shows start their world wide tours.
