Old Montreal, the Old Port or Vieux Montreal, whatever you like to call it, was established in 1642 and remains one of the city’s defining, iconic neighbourhoods. The cobblestone streets of Old Montreal are an obvious draw for tourists, but it’s not a dry, museum-like area. Montrealers work, eat, drink and explore in this historic milieu. It’s home to spas, art galleries, great wine, fashion designers and much, much more. But also: it’s super pretty and totally old-timey.
