The heart of Vieux Montreal, a long street lined with restaurants (many very good), cafes, art galleries, and tourist shops. Linger to observe the splendid old architecture. As ou leave the old town, the architecture changes but is still interesting. We walked along here many times.

This street provides an excellent commentary on the history of Old Montreal, including French and English influences. It is a lovely pedestrian street with shops and restaurants and a wonderful European ambiance.

Recommend a walking tour first so you know what you are seeing. Touristy but a lot of nice sidewalk cafes. Stay away on the weekends if possible. Utter chaos.

445 rue saint-paul est, montreal. Do not rent this home. It is extremely musty and made all in our party sick. We had to leave the rental early and the owner - who knowingly is aware of the musty smell - refused to refund us for our stay. Sam and Maqsood are very dishonourable people. Shame on them.

A walk down here is pleasant enough. There are a variety of shops mainly either chic or tourist and a number of restaurants, but its a fairly average tourist street and not a lot to write home about. Suitable for an amble, but that's about it.

We ate at several places on Rue St-Paul and marveled at the indigenous shops with native arts. Very enjoyable place to stroll along.

A must see for Montreal. Montreal founded here at the port area. Cobble stone streets, Notre Dame nearby. Many good restaurants and galleries near. Shops. Wine bars in a very romantic setting.

The heart of old Montreal. Sure it is touristy, but it is a very speacial place, daytime or night. Safe and beautiful.

A street with lots of stores and restaurants and things to do and see. Many hills and cobblestone streets may make you ditch your high heels and wear walking shoes. Lots of places to rent a bike and enjoy the trails around the water.
