We took a guided walking tour of Old Montreal which was very informative. We then spent several hours/days exploring every nook and cranny on foot! That’s the only way to best experience the area.

This is a wonderful part of the city worth visiting. So much history, great restaurants and pubs. It can get a little crowded on weekends.

From shops to restaurants to bars to galleries, there is tons to see and do here. Photo ops galore await you in this unique corner of the city. As close as you’ll get to Europe without shelling out for plane tics!

I didn’t find it special, but it is not a waste of time to walk around. A local friend said the restaurants are expensive and not worth for what they serve, so probably walk around and go somewhere else to eat.
