Was really disappointed with old Montreal. I was expecting a more relaxed and somewhat romantic atmosphere with unique boutiques but all it is, is a tourist trap to sell cheap souvenirs. I liked the old architecture but it certainly did not remind me of Paris...More

We visited Montreal for the first time and Old Montreal was our favorite place to spend our evenings!! The hustle and the bustle makes the environment lively. Stroll on the streets, eat in a restuarant or spend time people watching - hours just whizz by...More

Just like any other old cultural community that's commercialized to focus on profit. Trinkets, food and vendors. Food was decent. River-side had amusement area and good walking paths

I have been to Montreal but have never made it down to Old Montreal. It's very busy on summer weekends. We were staying at the H.I. at China Town and walked down. It's just behind Notre Dame Cathedral.

Wonderful old walking neighborhood, full of history, shops and restaurants. I recommend walking along the waterfront first, then back along Rue St. Paul from the area close to Notre Dame all the way over to Place Jacque Cartier.
