There are numerous sites and locations to see and visit, especially if you are a fan of old world design. On the flip side, the "new" is also only a few steps away as well.

We took our children to Old Montreal and we all highly enjoyed it. We felt like we were in old Europe and it was wonderful. We took a walking tour of the city and learned a lot about the history there while enjoying local cuisine.
