Narrow, walkable streets lined with interesting architecture, fun shops, and good restaurants. A pleasant park fronts Notre Dame Basilica. A small area, certainly worth a visit.

Small, compact Old Town can be walked quite easily. Many restaurants and bars to chose from. We stayed here, and were happy to be able to walk to the dock, where we took a boat ride, and walk to restaurants and shops.

Everything is within walking distance of the old Montreal. The best way to see the Basilica and old Montreal is to walk. There is limited parking in the area. Just wear comfortable shoes because you’ll be walking on lots of... More
