    My wife and I visited the Old Port during a trip to Montreal and loved it. This port is very similar to Chicago’s Navy Pier. Very nice!

    This used to be a very upscale residential neighborhood, but downtown has expanded and now you find all sorts of land uses including offices, hotels, and institutions. All upscale still. You can find some good food here. It is uphill from much of the city.

    The Promenade Fleuve-Montagne is Montreal's new 3.8 km (2.36 miles) pedestrian pathway linking Mount Royal Park to the Old Port. I'd heard mixed reviews of this $55.4 million pathway and wanted to try it out so I started at the top, which is at the base of the mountain. From Peel Metro I trudged up the rather steep hill to Pine Avenue, the start of the path. McTavish Street going down to Sherbrooke Street is one of the most scenic parts with cedar benches and nice greenery. Along the way there are a few water fountains, however, the pressure is low and the water warm. Signage to guide you along the path is, well, inadequate. We were two native Montrealers who know the city well and we inadvertently wandered off the path at least twice due to poor signage. Way too subtle coloured diamonds on posts and black or white squares on the road are the only indication you are on this promenade, which winds its way through busy city streets that take you past historical buildings, sculptures and even an archeological site. We had a printed map of the route and the sites along it. I would recommend taking your time to enjoy the sights along the way but I wish there would be better signage and more demarcation of the route so you feel like you're really on a pathway like New York's high line. Love the benches though!
