    Must Visit
    You can't miss this. It is right next to Old Montreal. It is very lively on weekends and when the sun is out. Great walk. Lots and lots of activities and places to shop, snack, dine, park. There are ferries from there but we didn't take any. Benches along the way, great are for a picnic. Plenty of arts to take pictures next to. Walked up and down in 2 hours and didn't miss a thing

    Lovely area
    The Old Port is a lovely area. It is best enjoyed by just walking along the waters edge. The views are wonderful. The port dates back to the early 1600s when it was used for trading purposes by traders sailing along St Lawrence River.

    Loads to do in the Old Port
    We wandered around here a few times, always in different areas. Well maintained with various places of entertainment and shops. Sat at the end of one of the piers, watching the boats going back and forth but not really tempted on a river cruise as there didn’t seem that much to see.

    Good walking area
    The old port area was very near our hotel and I did enjoy walking round here early morning watching the sunrise. There is so much to see from the large wheel, beach, lighthouse and tower. Great for watching the ships sailing up the river

    Free walking tour, Old Town Montreal
    Free Walking Tour, Montreal - Darren was our tour guide - he was really knowledgeable and made the tour really interesting. We managed to see quite a few points of interest and each one had history. I can recommend this tour - you will learn so much!

Nice views from the port. You can see the ferris wheel and the Bonsecours market. Good smoked meat sandwich from Deli de Vieux-Port.

The Old Port of Montreal opened in 1830 as a commercial port, it had been a trading posy since the 1600's it stretches 2kms along the shores of the St Lawrence River and is a prime tourist and entertainment area of the city.

Not sure what I'm missing, the place was empty, ponds empty, shops closed, building in need of repair, no cafes to grab a drink.
Double checked when we got back to the hotel to make sure we were in the right place. Maybe it's better in summer?

I have never seen an employee potentially syndicated at the parking lot who lacked social abilities to the point he was impolite towards a school bus driver and should I add condescending in the awful way he instructed the driver to take the students further down the road. I will add that people inside Centre des sciences who have clearly showed us and our extremely well brought 52 students that they punch when they work, which we don’t. Thumbs up to the staff at IMAX and in la Fabrique upstairs where we felt welcome and were treated well, but to the bunch of morons who made us feel cheap for asking for an extra table for the teachers to eat, you deserve to lose your job.

My wife and I visited the Old Port during a trip to Montreal and loved it. This port is very similar to Chicago’s Navy Pier. Very nice!

This part of the city is gorgeous especially on a snowy winter evening. It has great shopping, restaurants and makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time
