Old Montreal, Montreal

4.5
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. Plan to visit Old Montreal during your Montreal vacation using our convenient Montreal trip itinerary planner .

  • Old Montreal makes you feel as though you are in France or somewhere else in Europe. Lots of beautiful architecture, and places to eat or grab a coffee. The art museum in nice as well. Very walkable.  more »
  • Old monthly area located in the Centre of the small town Montreal baliesque, historic architecture, much remains, and tourist attractions are tight. Small areas, so including the baliesque, 3 hours was enough, though. Area has plenty of restaurants (often French), so the room was. It is recommended to explore the popular bakery and Cafe, the early closing time is confirmed in advance.
