The old port has an eclectic mix of boats, restaurants, retailers and entertainment. It was busy when I visited and I would imagine it's very busy in the evening. It's easily located and a reasonable walk from downtown hotels.

Great place to stroll and see many interesting things: scenic views, fine architecture, old and new in harmony. Enjoyed the Cirque du Soleil on the pier.

The old port area is one of the most lively in Montreal. it is notlimited to musicians and portrait drawing in the street. Nor to dancing and magics. Nor to the Science Center and bus that takes you inside the river (yes that it called out of the normal roads). If you feel like adventure is calling you, why not... More

Neither old or a port. The tent for the Cirque du Soleil occupies a prominent space and there are booths selling things for tourists.

The "Vieux Port" (Old Port) of Montreal has so many attractions when visiting or living in Montreal. There are restaurants galore, beautiful walks along the St. Lawrence river, fireworks on weekend evenings, and St. Paul Street, reminiscent of Paris. Highly recommended is the amphibious tour!

Cirque of Sole was there with Volta. the place is nice but is more for tourist and all restaurants and shops are a bit over priced.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
