The historic city center is rich in museums, shops, restaurants and grey stone architecture spread out along narrow, cobblestone streets. It is also home to the Vieux Port attractions and lively public squares like Place Jacques-Cartier. Exploring Old Montreal means exploring the very heart of one of North America's greatest cities, a multi-faceted place where the past and the present come together in exciting and unexpected ways.
I'm in Montreal right now and I don't think I ever want to go back home..lol
It really is beautiful and yes the majority are french-speaking but most are bilingual and willing to accomodate, but as they say.."when in Rome...."
It's a wonderful, cosmopolitan city and extremely charming.
I thought that Old Montreal was very beautiful, and the people were very friendly. You may think that they talk only in French, but they also talk in English, though they may sometimes mistake French words for English ones. I'm only 12, and I still thought this place was fabulous. It takes some hours to get there, but you'll realize that its worth it!!! GOT TO OLD MONTREAL!!!!
