  • I would say that among the thousands of rounds that one does on vacation a relaxing walk near the harbour is due. I must say that at night inspired me a lot of confidence we turned and went back into the Central streets aside from the giant Ferris wheel lit which by virtue of this part of town.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
