We did a self guided walking tour. Time estimated was 2 hours. I think we spent 4 or 5 because there is so much to see. I really admire old Montreal has preserved its history yet offers a very comfortable modern experience!

Some quaint bars and shops. Be aware of yourself at night. Lovely cobblestone streets and some nice restaurants but VERY touristy.

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
