Old Montreal, Montreal
(4.4/5 based on 8,000+ reviews on the web)
Wander through one of North America's oldest urban areas at Old Montreal. First established by French colonialists in the mid-17th century (after the defeat of the local Iroquois people), the neighborhood retains much of its old-world charm. Admire the facades of important religious buildings, grab a meal on the terrace of one of the district's many restaurants, or simply lose yourself in the web of cobbled streets. Stroll down to the waterfront to see views over the Saint Lawrence River. Put Old Montreal and other Montreal attractions into our Montreal vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beatiful place. It seems as if you're in Europe. Especially in the summer. So many people, tourists. It's right on the water and there are plenty of restaurants and little shops nearby. 
  • Plenty of stores and good restaurants in the area, friendly people and great scenery. The area is safe but there is a lot of construction. Good French food at reasonable prices. A must visit while in ...  more »
  • Make sure you know the old town. Very reminiscent of Paris, of the old continent. Stroll the streets at will. Visit the wharf, the squares and the Notre Damme
