We had a great time here! Catered to tourists. Fun time all around! We spent 5 hours there & my young kids didn't want to leave.

Neither old or a port. The tent for the Cirque du Soleil occupies a prominent space and there are booths selling things for tourists.

The "Vieux Port" (Old Port) of Montreal has so many attractions when visiting or living in Montreal. There are restaurants galore, beautiful walks along the St. Lawrence river, fireworks on weekend evenings, and St. Paul Street, reminiscent of Paris. Highly recommended is the amphibious tour!

Cirque of Sole was there with Volta. the place is nice but is more for tourist and all restaurants and shops are a bit over priced.

We went before everything was open, but we did do a Duck Tour that took us through the city and then on to the St Laurent river. Just an hour, enough to learn a few things about the city and spend some time on the water and get some nice views

We dropped by as part of our walking tour. This is the Old Port of Montreal which developed the city. You can take various boat tours, there are zip lining activities, you can browse locals stalls, try various food stuff, see some nice views of the St Lawrence River and views across the city.

We walked along the canal one morning. You can't forget that it is a port walking along there. Lots of construction going on when we were there.

We went during April, but there was still a lot to do, the history of this port is amazing, back in the day, the St. Lawrence river actually reached the buildings, you can see signage from the port which is quite interesting. How sailors would attend the local churches, bringing gifts for their safe return. Lots going on, for all... More

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
