Old Montreal Tips (151)

Expo 67'

On your bicycle ride in the Old port, look out for this very particular habitation. It was build in 1967 during the International Exhibition as a pure design exercise and it's mesmerising. Only build with blocks. I always wanted to live there!

Visit the Old Port area: ...

Visit the Old Port area: Place Jacques Cartier, the Marche Bonsecours. Take a drive to the top of Mont Royal to see the city at night. Take a boat to the islands in the St. Lawrence--in summer, these islands have very pretty parks.

Take a horse drawn carriage...

Take a horse drawn carriage ride through the old city.
For an hour you can pretend you've gone back in time and get a tour and explanation of the buildings in Montreal. It's a chance to see the city at a very leisurely pace. Plus I got to feed the horse afterwards. Very cool!!

Hotel de Ville

Montréal's Hotel de Ville is far from being a hotel. It has been Montréal's city hall since 1878, when it was built in the Second Empire style near the Place Jacques-Cartier in Vieux Montréal. Widely regarded as one of the city's most beautiful buildings, the Hotel de Ville was also the site of Charles de Gaulle's famous 'Vive le Québec Libre' speech, which was one of the events which kicked off the so-called Québec 'quiet revolution'. Unfortunately, this building is not open to the public, but is lit up beautifully at night.

Place Jacques-Cartier

The beautiful Place Jaques-Cartier is located in the heart of Vieux-Montreal between rue Notre-Dame and rue de la Commune, providing an inviting public space which heads downhill from rue Notre-Dame and l'Hotel de Ville to the Vieux-Port. The square is pedestrianised and is lined with historic 17th, 18th, and 19th century buildings, many of which are excellent restaurants. Among other things the Place features gardens, street performers, and many artists at work. The Place is the perfect jumping off place for other Vieux-Montréal attractions, with the Hotel de Ville and Chateau Ramezay just off it on rue Notre-Dame, the tiny rue St-Amable (rue des Artistes) an alley filled with artists' wares, off of it, the Marché Bonsecours nearby on rue St-Paul, and the Vieux-Port at its base. At the head of the Place, where it meets Rue Notre-Dame, is a column dedicated to Admiral Horatio Nelson, who destroyed Napoleon's fleet at Alexandria. Surprisingly, it was not put up by the British colonial government but by the francophone merchants, who were no fans of Napoleon's exploits.

The Old Montreal as a whole.

The Old Montreal as a whole.
Just enjoy it many ways. Visit the narrow uneven streets, sit at a terrace and look around, have a nice dinner in one of the restaurant located in a old building (100-200 years old).

Place Jacques-Cartier

A touristy but pretty little square. Walk down the narrow cobblestone side streets after you've taken a couple pictures with the statue.
