The hotel we stayed in had a great view of Old Montreal. We took an hour carriage ride to hear about the buildings and stories of the area.

If you have seen the old towns of European cities, this would be a disappointment, but if this is your first, it is manageable. It is a mix of an old town and new. The thing that makes it less enjoyable is the fact that they allow cars/vehicles on the streets. There is only 1 odd street that is pedestrian street, which is full of over priced eateries.

Liked - Old Euro-Francais charm, enjoyed all the history. Love this city, love the food...etc.

Disliked - OMG! the construction, the detours and the being hopelessly lost if you don't get the exits right...not a whole lot of helpful English here either, so bring your Garmin, it will at least re-direct you...until you are at the next detour...

transport yourself to Europe without actually having to go. Beautiful architecture, fantastic cafes and restaurants, and friendly people. Who needs to fly to Paris and deal with the attitudes? Go to Montreal and you'll get treated to a European experience in North America.

You will really get a sense of history and the development of Montreal from the Old part. Easily walked cobblestone streets, several museums to visit in addition to strolling and looking at beautiful architecture. Solid dining options as well for day and more upscale in evenings. Sitting outside is ideal on a nice sunny day. Expect some gems of shopping and art mixed with typical tourist shops. You can easily spend a day here.
