Hop on a bus from the airport and check out Old Montreal. So Beautiful. It reminds me of being in europe with all the old architecture. Great shops to visit and very good food almost every street you venture on. The people are amazingly friendly...More

It's nice to walk around, maybe sit down and have something to eat. There are some lovely art galleries around the zone too.

In Canada you won’t find too many places this old with this much character. Lots of dining options and shops. Easy walking around. Not much parking, take a cab to get there or transit. If you visit Montreal you must visit here.

Old Montreal is about a half hour walk from downtown Montreal or a 8 min uber ride. Lots to see and do mostly outdoors so dress warm in the colder months

Take a tour of Old Montreal to get the history then walk around on your own to enjoy the shops, galleries and food. Beautiful to walk through and window shop.

There is nothing old in old Montreal! There is no life there except for tourists! Buildings are less than 200 years old! There are plenty of souvenirs shops with T-shirts made in Bangladesh and gadgets from China. Third rate art boutiques! I live in Montreal!...More

The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to
some of the city's most antiquated buildings and
picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St.
Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums,
festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a
celebrated part of the city that explodes into
fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its
centre, street performers and artists compete with
