Temperature was supposed to be cold but in reality it wasn't so it was lovely to walk around! You can feel the European influence! The old Montreal looks like Nice or Marseille but smaller and more clean!

Easy stroll; well marked. We did the walk on our own with map. Great photos of ‘old’ & ‘new’ Montreal. Has changed a lot in 40 years( our last visit) but still lovely.
