Old Montreal is about a half hour walk from downtown Montreal or a 8 min uber ride. Lots to see and do mostly outdoors so dress warm in the colder months

Take a tour of Old Montreal to get the history then walk around on your own to enjoy the shops, galleries and food. Beautiful to walk through and window shop.

There is nothing old in old Montreal! There is no life there except for tourists! Buildings are less than 200 years old! There are plenty of souvenirs shops with T-shirts made in Bangladesh and gadgets from China. Third rate art boutiques! I live in Montreal!...More

Old Montreal is now aimed mostly at tourists, with lots of souvenir shops and overprices restaurants. The good news is that it's pretty compact and is easily reached by Montreal's excellent Metro system.

Loved visiting Old Montreal. The French flare was beautiful. The architecture and cobble stone roads made this city gorgeous.

some of the city's most antiquated buildings and
picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St.

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
