... shops seem to be more and more closing down and relocating to other areas of the city or even to other cities. Still many art galleries and souvenir shops around. Maybe summer is a better time for a visit than December.

We spent our first evening exploring Old Montreal and couldn’t have asked for a nicer evening. Brisk, but not too cold. The shops were delightful and holiday decorations created a perfect winter atmosphere. Can’t wait to return tomorrow during the day!

It has a feel of history about it, especially at night and the cobbled streets add to its charm. In my humble opinion it is a must see part of any visit to Montreal. Quite simply, go and enjoy.

Take your time and really appreciate the architecture in Old Montreal. The buildings are amazing. Lots of little souvenir shops, clothing stores, restaurant and pubs. Come during the day and return at night for a different experience with the lights.

Loved the European look/style architecture of old Montreal this might be the closest I get to Europe. Some of the streets were narrow and I can kinda picture horse and buggy going through town in the old days.

Love visiting Old Montreal whenever in the city. A little slower of a pace than the rest of the city. Love the cobblestone streets and old buildings. Always lots to do along the piers.

I'm spending a week in Old Town Montreal and cannot wander enough, slowly experiencing and digesting this unusual blend of Old Europe and North America.

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
