We spent 2 days in old Montreal. Lots of History, great food, old churches and buildings. Our guests from the UK had a great time and said it gave them another view of this great country.

Montreal is a real gem. Make sure you take in the Olympic Park. You can get there on the underground very easily. The old part of the city is very picturesque. Hotels a bit expensive so be warned.

One cannot leave Montreal without visiting the old city. The better restaurants are here (but also the tourist traps), and of course the souvenir shops and some interesting museums. There was a fair when we were there, down by the water, but I don't know...More

Lovely old town with beautiful old stone buildings and walkways, which unfortunately have been ruined by the tacky shops and tourist trap restaurants that now inhabit them.

Old Montreal makes one feel as if they are walking down an European city. On a warm Summer's night the atmosphere is just fantastic . We walked all over the old city , had an ice cream and totally enjoyed the atmosphere.

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

I visited Old Montreal back in 1978 when I was a teenager. There was a German Beer hall there at the time with great German music. Is that still there? If so, what is the name of it?
