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.

"Sacred Notre Dame cathedral in Montreal!!!"
reviewed 1 week ago by MXL321
The cathedral is located in the old town, across from Durham square, is a neo-gothic catholic cathedral, the largest and oldest cathedral in North America. Just look at the outside, is not it a little like Notre Dame DE paris？
The cathedral interior is worth a visit! When I walked into the cathedral, I felt shocked by the magnificence of...
We loved the presentation, movie, and foundations of Montreal. The movie was informative and interesting for my teenager. We both loved learning about the generations of Les Habitants.
We loved walking through the sewer & archeological exhibits of old Montreal.
We decided to visit the chapelle and to our surprise, the belvédère was open. Well worth going up the stairs for a fabulous view of Old Port. A visit of the crypt and archeological site are a must. Nice boutique and very friendly staff.
Here in a Sunday morning before we head to the Musée de history and archaeology and then on for vintage shopping
People very pleasant. Pain au chocolate v good. Bagel with cream cheese be good. Chai latte Ok. Americano v good
People are VERY nice. They had a slow start when we came and they gave us a free pain...
We had a beautiful meal here during a week end in Montreal. The menu is not lengthy but so imaginative and highlights “local and fresh”. We had the piglet risotto which was awesome. My husband is not a fan of risotto but he loved it also — lots of meaty sauce. I had the fresh catch which was cod, perfectly...

Two weeks ago my wife Pat and I stayed at Hotel Bonaparte for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Hotel is just lovely and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Throughout the weekend the reception staff answered all our questions and provided helpful suggestions which really enhanced our stay. Special mention to Jason and Amy...
The location couldn't be better right in the old town and just back from the waterfront. We had a corner room with exposed brick walls and a Nespresso machine. Modern bathroom with a jacuzzi bath with shower attachment but although the bedroom was warm the heater in the bathroom wasn't working and two engineers had no idea how to get...
The hotel exceeded my expectations. It is very modern and clean, The staff is realy kind and nice. The bedroom is very comfy and clean. The breakfast was included and delicious. I strongly recomended it.
We stayed the the Hotel William Gray for a few nights in early March. It was a great experience, with an exceptional location. If you are looking to do things like visit Bota Bota, or the Notre Dame Basilica, you couldn't ask for a better location. It's in the heart of downtown Montreal but it's a relatively quiet side street....
We had a great stay. Room was small but clean and up to date. The bed and the shower were first class. Staff was friendly and helpful without being overbearing. The layout of the hotel is a bit awkward as it is spread over four buildings necessitating a walk from the front desk through three buildings to reach our elevator....
