Like strolling through the campus of Harvard, you get the same sense of history and prestige when visiting McGill University.

We love to walk to McGill University and walk the campus. It is a wonderful, historical place, with magnificent historical architecture. It is also set up to be very visitor friendly. (Montreal is the best walking city that we've found.)

McGill University has a lot of beautiful buildings and covers a lot of land in Montreal. There is a lot of history to the university. We only did a drive by but it is impressive.

The university was closed, but we wandered around the grounds and it was lovely. Realised that this University was where many of my old text books came from.

I do believe that McGill University is one of the best universities in Montreal. The story of Mr. McGill when he decided to give his own home for the students to study is so nice. The location of the University gave it another credit in...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

We stayed in old Montreal which was a good 35 minute walk from McGill. I would highly recommend staying in OM but not if you have to get to McGill daily.

I noticed a Metro entrance/exit on Rue Catherine and from there it would be about a five block walk. I would suggest downloading a metro map from Montreal's transportation site.
