Wish I explored this area on a nicer day. Lots of neat stores and loved walking down the cobble stone roads. The architecture Is incredible so bring your camera. So much to see.

If you like cobblestone streets, this is the place for you. Overpriced shops and restos line the streets! Still worth a walk, it has some beautiful architecture!

Had to visit Old Montreal! Lived there for a while in the early 70's and wanted to see what it looked like now. Full of fantastic architecture and unique cobblestone roadways, plus a wide array of foods to satisfy every imagineable palate. A must see.

Gorgeous day for a walk ! Not too crowded and a few terraces open. The Ferris Wheel in the Old Port opened their bar, bistro and snack bar and a lovely lounge/terrace in the center.

Old Montreal is a must stop, lots to see and do. It is really neat to see the old cobble stone streets and old buildings. If you can go before the summer, as it gets very busy. Springtime you can stroll around almost to yourself.

I spent all afternoon walking around there. It's wonderful. If you went already to Paris, you'll feel something similar.

Old Montreal has cobblestone streets, interesting shops, cafes, and picturesque homes, not to mention Notre-Dame Basilica at the beginning of the district.

Cute little area that has a small cobbblestoned shopping street with restaurants and shops. Tons of souvenir shops that can be a bit pricey. Bought a sweatshirt in one that cost us $40 while that same sweatshirt cost $27.99 in another, so definitely shop around....More
