Vieux-Montréal (Old Montréal) is the city of Montréal's biggest attraction. Rattling horse-drawn carriages, centuries-old boulders and antique street lanterns: soak up the romantic and nostalgic atmosphere of this Canadian city. This part of the city is full of historical attractions and dozens of shops and restaurants – a tour of Vieux-Montréal is a must for every visitor.
The history of Montréal goes back to the year 1642, when the French landed on the shores of the St. Lawrence River and founded a settlement there. The town became a lively trading post and well into the 19th century this was the commercial and financial centre of Canada. The economic heart of Montréal has since shifted to downtown, but Vieux-Montréal continues to captivate visitors with its charm and European flair.
