We went in the dead of winter but walking through Old Montreal was still beautiful. There were lots of tourists and souvenir shops as well as great places to eat!

This place has a lot of history and the cobblestone streets with old buildings transport you back in time. However most of the restaurants are mediocre at best and cater to large crowds and tour groups, a lot of the shops are just overpriced souvenirs....More

Fun neighbourhood to wander around when visiting Montreal. Adorable shops and cafes. If you like an old charm and cobblestone streets this is the spot for you.

Old Montreal is truly Europeanesque with its cobblestone streets, architecture, French language and close spaces. It is the highlight of Montreal and greedily hordes a lot of the city's (by no means all though) interesting sites. A visit is easy, comfortable and a time travel....More

My visit to montreal is never complete without a visit to Old Montreal; very European feel, much like Paris, lots of activities, restaurants on or near the water, lots of great art galleries - awesome just to walk down

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

We went to upstairs jazz bar and grill expecting to catch a late show at around 10pm and it was just finishing up. Living in NYC spoils us :) - may want to check the times but looks like a great venue!
