Grab a map and just explore the cobblestone streets and fascinating buildings of the Old Port. Plenty of quality bars (La Champagnerie) and restaurants to break up your walk. Be sure to visist the subterranean digs at the Point-a-Callier museum of archeology to understand a little of Montreal's 350 year history. Fascinating.

I live in Montreal and always tell visitors they must visit old Montreal. It's very scenic and quaint. There are many lovely restaurants and you can stroll into museums and small shops. It's very lively with people especially in the spring and summer. People stop to watch live shows on the main street. There's an IMAX theatre, ice cream shops,... More

We spent a day in Old Montreal, first on a food/walking tour, and then on our own for several hours. It feels like Europe. Narrow streets, cobblestones, small shops and restaurants, quite charming.

What a beautiful weekend getaway! We had such a wonderful time visiting! So many wonderful restaurants and such a variety of food. We stayed at Le Place D'Armes which was the perfect location for everything!! And a fabulous hotel! We loved the cold as coming from Texas was an exciting event for us. So much to do!

I live in the Old Port so I'm lucky to have lots of visiting friends, because no one can come to Montreal and not spend time here. There is a green space/park that runs the length of the old port with walking and cycling paths that continue to the western tip of the island. Outdoor markets, food trucks, cafes, restaurants,...

Very touristy place to visit and walk. There is an old and famous church called Notre Dame which is fantastically decorated. Definitely Old Montreal is known for its caffes and exquisite restaurants. Summer is the best time to visit and walk around the old port of Montreal.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, 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 sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
