The area is beautiful with European styled buildings and other architecture. It is clean and safe. My partner and I enjoyed looking around and taking pictures. It feels like I'm in Europe.

Though many of the store fronts are tourist traps, the street still has an historic appeal and ambiance. Plenty of restaurants/bars and some high end shops as well.

Cobblestones and old world charm. Lovely places to eat, shop and visit. Parking is tricky, but once you've found a spot, the rest of the area is very walkable

I would start by saying that Montreal is an amazing city resampling Europe on so many levels. This area is wonderful; cobble stone streets, the architecture, the restaurants, pastry shops, which no one should avoid, and in general there is always a holiday type atmosphere while surrounded by courteous locals everywhere I consider it a must try

Phenomenal architecture and atmosphere of the settlement days. The selection of restaurants is numerous but one becomes overwhelmed to choose just the right one! Parking is difficult and you will be ticketed in locals only zone. I go to The valet service upper portion for a flat rate ! Be sure to visit the lovely chapel -- Our Lady of... More

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.
