A beautiful cobblestone street for pedestrians only. Lots of shops and restaurants to spend time. Live street music to enjoy. A wonderful location in Old Montreal. It comes to life mid day and gets more vibrant as the day goes on but best from dinner...More

Rue St-Paul is a cobbled pedestrian street which runs the length of Old Montreal. It is lined with typical tourist shops, some good galleries, and a number of restaurants ranging from mediocre to excellent.

According to the concierge at our hotel, this was the original main street in Montreal. It is still a great place to stroll and shop. Many Boutiques, shops restaurants and pubs. A Must do. It is also Pedestrian Friendly.

What an amazing experience. To spend the afternoon wandering in and out of the shops and stopping for lunch was out of this world.

Sorry I am unable to assist you with this question. I travelled there in February for a weekend stay so I am not privy to the road work conditions.

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).
