We stayed in the Gay Village neighborhood and enjoyed the proximity to Old Montreal and other sites.
This itinerary is great for any day before sunset.
The summer months are beautiful in Montreal.
Planning a family vacation to Montreal, Canada? Take the whole family on a fantastic Old Montreal (Vieux Montreal) walking tour. This relaxed, full-day itinerary offers great attractions and family fun. A day out in Old Montreal engages a plethora of senses, from hearing and seeing the French language to breathtaking architecture and great French-Canadian treats. Begin the day by strolling through Montreal’s oldest street, Rue Saint-Paul. Take in the exquisite architecture and be sure to see the Notre Dame Basilica of Montreal. Afterwards, walk over to Marché Jean-Talon (Jean Talon Market) and devour some crepes and poutine french fries. This market is particularly famous and has been around for years. It’s a must-see attraction in Montreal for families and foodies. Lastly, walk off those poutine calories by heading back through Le Plateau-Mont-Royal (Mount Royal). This charming neighborhood is known for its cafés, galleries and lovely architecture.
