Old Montreal and the Old Port
One of Montreal’s most popular historic attractions, Old Montreal and the Port can be found on the north bank of the St Lawrence River. The Port is converted into a sandy beach in the summer, and a romantic ice rink in the winter. Not far away, Old Montreal, within the city walls and recognised as an historic district, offers a labyrinth of pretty streets lined with old buildings, particularly from the time of French rule, no fewer than seven museums and the Notre-Dame Basilica on the Place d'Armes. At night, the lights showcase the charm and beauty of the city’s monuments.
