This is a lovely street running through the heart of the town. You can take a walking tour or a carriage ride through here, and there are many nice restaurants and shops along this street as well.

Decent walk throughout old town. Mix of old architecture and new. Many coffee shops and some art galleries. Better when the weather is nicer.

Just carry your camera. Most beautiful architecture...banks, churches, hotels...old style. Nice. En plus, great cafes and restaurants. People of all backgrounds meander the streets daily, particularly in the summer. It's a must see... Sylvia K ❤️Old Montreal...

There are plans to turn the eastern... More

So many shops and great restaurants! I spent a couple evenings on the patio in front of Notre Dame Basilica and ended up chatting with the most interesting of people! Listening to musicians, enjoying an espresso, riding the carriage, so much to do!

Historic street lined with magnificent European-style buildings and structures, including the Notre Dame Cathedral, City Hall, Nelson's Column and Justice Hall. Good jump off point for the downtown waterfront, which itself has plenty of attractions.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
