During our long weekend in Montreal, we ventured to Rue Saint Paul for shopping, strolling, and dining one day. The incredible architecture would be enough reason to visit, but the shops and delicious dining options make this a must-do. (We dined at Restaurant Papillion and Modavie. Loved them both and I've written separate reviews for each.)

This street is typical for tourist. All the shops are focussed on souvenirs and there are a lot of bars and restaurants.

There are quite a few wonderful "walking streets " in Quebec, but the most lively, beautiful and busy area is along Rue St. Paul.It boasts art galleries, clothing boutiques, gourmet food shops, and restaurants. The streets are narrow (so are the sidewalks!) but visitors are friendly and recognize right-of-way with smiles. There are even benches and a small park along... More

We stayed at Hotel Nelligan on Rue St-Paul in the heart of Old Montreal. Wandering around at night I felt I was in Paris again. Rue St-Paul is a narrow street that dates to the earliest days and is brimming with good restaurants, only a block from the river, two blocks from Notre Dame.

Fabulous area with so much history to offer, buildings are fabulous (and will be better when all of the roadworks have been finished :) ). Plenty of little coffee shops to stop off at and just enjoy the atmosphere, art shops and souvenir shops also aplenty (if somewhat tacky).

Great street to eat and shop. The roads are cobblestone but the sidewalks were handicap friendly. Too bad it rained during our visit

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
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 sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
