Great place for walking & people watching. Plenty of historical sites to visit but it's fun to just wander around, peeking into the stores and restaurants. Really gives you a sense of what Montreal is about. First stop!

My family wasn't impressed much. That's a typical downtown with some European fleur. A lot of construction is going on... I mean A LOT... Would I recommend to visit? Yes, probably. Would I visit again? Definitely not. Overall, It's not bad, but don't expect too...More

We are calling this our fake European vacation. Old Montreal is beautiful and quaint with wonderful places to eat on nearly every corner. It is just a pleasure to stroll along the brick streets and take in the atmosphere.

Montreal is a real gem. Make sure you take in the Olympic Park. You can get there on the underground very easily. The old part of the city is very picturesque. Hotels a bit expensive so be warned.

I visited Old Montreal back in 1978 when I was a teenager. There was a German Beer hall there at the time with great German music. Is that still there? If so, what is the name of it?
