    Long Walk on Long Historic Street
    You will return many times to this street because it is very long, runs through the heart of Vieux Montreal, and because there is so much good food and drink along the way. Lots of historic buildings as well. Not a lot of traffic so the walk is relatively peaceful.

    Charming street
    Montreal's oldest street. Some parts still have the cobblestone retaining it's old-world charm. Lots of shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes to satisfy your curiosity and empty your wallet. Fortunate we had a stunning 22 degree celcius, sunny day to soak in the ambience.

    Historic street
    Rue Saint-Paul is one of Montreal's oldest streets. It is a lovely area to take a stroll and enjoy the surrounding beautiful buildings, shops and the atmosphere. The Bonsecours Market is there with a large variety of shops inside. Also the old Notre-Dame De-Bonsecours Chapel is in this area and worth visiting as well.

    Beautiful Old Montreal cobblestone street - perfect for strolling
    On our visit to Montreal we always enjoyed walking Rue St-Paul. Just taking our time, strolling, people watching, looking into the shop windows, reading the various restaurant menus, and more. Yes it's a bit touristy, but still has that charm of a European flavor!

This is probably the prettiest street in old Montreal. Granted it is touristy but it is still very atmospheric and just reminds you of walking round a major European city.

Fun to walk and pop in to stores, be sure to read the history so you study the buildings and not just the art stores. Beautiful at night but more open during the day.

Definitely a place to walk through and enjoy the old street with buldings dating to 17th and 18th centuries.

There are many local restaurants and ypu can go here after visiting Notre Dame Basilica.

Visited by accident as we got a place to park our car in near by parking area. However, its very beautiful place to be around that area for a evening walk.

This street is down by the water and is a great walk. There are old buildings, places to eat, and shops. It’s crowded in the afternoon. The area has a lot of energy and is a must do thing in Montreal.

In the heart of Old Montreal, this is the most Parisienne of streets. It caters to tourists with restaurants and shops. We dined at 2 different restaurants on this street and enjoyed both. This was my favorite area in Montreal.

I can understand the hype. Lots to shop, dine and see. We spent an afternoon going up and down. Careful with the people on the bike
