Immersed in art, architecture, culture and Christmas lights. Cobblestones and cozy cafes on a cold Monday night.

A good place for a not too long visit. The best part of rue St-Paul isn't that long. If you like little shops and restaurants, you'll enjoy this place.

A beautiful walk in the morning, and another in the evening. You really only need to walk this once at each time. There are a handful of galleries and quite a few restaurants, but only one bar you really need to visit (Bar Philemon). This...More

If memory serves, many of the streets in Old Montreal are cobble stoned. However, Rue St Paul runs parallel to and is the next thoroughfare east of Rue Notre Dame (the street that the Basilique Notre-Dame is on).
