Other than the workers, you won’t many native Montréalers here. It’s the old City peppered with lots of street artists and tourist shops. It’s worth it just to see the old architecture and the hustle and bustle is fun, but one day should suffice.

A beautiful town to spend as much time as you want. The architecture ambience and beauty is worth enjoying. If possible would like to come again and live a few days here only.

If you're planning a trip to Montreal, leave a day open for the old city. If you don't go on a walking tour, at least stroll through it on your own. Lots of great opportunites for pictures.

Amazing preservation of historic buildings. During our stay the area ranged from packed on beautiful evenings to almost deserted on a rainy day. A nice area to walk, dine, and pick up souvenirs.
