It is a great experience just to wander around the small streets. You feel you are in France. People seem to eat quite late so go after 7pm for a good stroll and find yourself a nice place to eat and watch people go by.

Compared with other cities like Quebec City it is really a bit boring and nothing special. It is okay to spend a few hours but you don't miss too much if you skip Montreal on your vacation trip.

Nice place to walk around with a lot of small shops and awesome French street atmosphere. We had really good laugh seeing the very creative T-shirts and other little things. Night time is also beautiful especially from the other side of old port. Wonderful time...More

I had an early morning walk in this part of town and I enjoyed the old granite buildings. Interesting to read some of the history of the city as well.

We did our own walking tour of Old Montreal from the Frommers travel guide. Amazing history. Maybe we should have found a proper walking tour as sometimes you miss that local knowledge

My husband and I have travelled all over the world and this town is a prettier, cleaner Paris. From the cobblestone roads to the sweet little alleyways, I absolutely loved my time in this town.

A mixture of old / historic and new / modern - everything easy to reach by foot. Nice coffee shops, museen and well decorated old city however for an European nice and with character but not outstanding (yet more appealing than Toronto).
