Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Wander through one of North America's oldest urban areas at Old Montreal. First established by French colonialists in the mid-17th century (after the defeat of the local Iroquois people), the neighborhood retains much of its old-world charm. Admire the facades of important religious buildings, grab a meal on the terrace of one of the district's many restaurants, or simply lose yourself in the web of cobbled streets. Stroll down to the waterfront to see views over the Saint Lawrence River. Plan to visit Old Montreal during your Montreal vacation using our convenient Montreal trip itinerary planner.

  • Lots to do and see. Clean and friendly. Wish I had spent more time just checking around and there was still some COVID limitations.  more »
  • It's like going to Europe, by visiting this section of Montreal! The buildings, the cobblestone streets, and the atmosphere are all authentically French!  more »
