“My favorite part of Montreal”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

It really does feel like you are strolling around France in this area. Cafes, shops, architecture with character, cobblestone streets, just lovely all around. We explored lots of Montreal and the city is a great city but we were continually drawn back to this area. A must see area of Montreal

A must visit spot after a fabulous Grand Prix weekend. Simply wander the streets and soak up the culture: old and new.

“Friendly”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Historic section of Montreal features museums, cathedrals, restaurants, bars, and shops (ranging from cheesy souvenir shops to high end galleries). Many of the streets are blocked off for pedestrians only. Great place to simply walk around stop for a snack or drink, particularly along Rue Saint-Paul, east of Rue Saint-Sulpice.

“One of a kind area for North America”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

A must visit for coming to Montreal. One of the oldest areas in North America. Like being transported to old sections of Paris. Gotten a bit commercial over the last 20 years but still an awesome stroll through the old streets.
