Old Montreal, not far from the city centre, is a historic neighbourhood in transition alive with raw energy. A compact area where the city was founded in 1642, it is today packed with museums, churches, galleries, restaurants, boutiques, boutique hotels, and entertainment venues. A tourist destination in any season, the ambiance of its squares and waterfront park is determinately romantic.
Whether you want to ride a giant ferris wheel, go skating in winter, view dazzling fireworks from an illuminated bridge in summer, or just explore its narrow cobblestone streets to soak up four centuries of history in Vieux Montréal, this book is indispensable.
This walking tour pocket guide is a complete revision of the bestseller published for the city's 375 anniversary which was recommended by Report on Business as "the perfect guidebook."
