Everything you could ever want is within a 15 min. walking distance. Shopping and restaurant choices abound. I highly recommend getting pleasantly lost in the small boutique area along Rue St. Paul and Rue St.Francis-Xavier.

Explore Place des Armes (Notre Dame Basilica), Place Jacques Cartier (cafes and restaurants and Nelson Column) or stroll the cobblestone streets and visit the many unique shops and galleries, and enjoy the street performers which abound in the summer months. Old Montreal will not disappoint. It's many museums (Chateau de Ramesay, 1657-1724) Archeological Museum (Point-A-Caillieres), the Science Museum (Old Port Area). are all informative and interesting. You can take a horse drawn carriage ride or stroll the Promenade du Vieux. Walking tours can be obtained at the tourist information booth, as well as, 45 minute boat tours of the harbor. Bonsecours market has indoor shopping with some interesting items. For the best views of Old Montreal climb the clock tower. Some restaurants(Modavie, Les 3 Brasseurs, etc.) can have long queues so book ahead. I had a fabulous weekend.

Lots of great restaurants, plenty of shopping and fantastic art galleries. A week is not long enough unless you can eat 4-5 meals per day.

Nice in any weather. Stroll outside if sun is shining, go to one of myriad cafes and restos or to Marche Bonsecours if it rains.
