Great shops and cuisine. Many festivals happen all summer long. Excellent for tourists as most workers are bilingual.

Narrow, walkable streets lined with interesting architecture, fun shops, and good restaurants. A pleasant park fronts Notre Dame Basilica. A small area, certainly worth a visit.

Small, compact Old Town can be walked quite easily. Many restaurants and bars to chose from. We stayed here, and were happy to be able to walk to the dock, where we took a boat ride, and walk to restaurants and shops.
