Is old Montreal worth a visit?

I'm going to be attending a wedding in Montreal and am thinking of things to do there while not doing wedding things.  I've heard a bit about Old Montreal. Is it worth a visit? What else can I explore in Montreal?  This will be my first time there.

    Depends on what time of the year. Montreal is an amazing gem in North America. I would go to the following places

    -Jean-Talon Market (beautiful open market for food)

    -Walking tour through Old Montreal( Google free walking tour in Montreal)

    -Walk through St Denis St beautiful street where something is always going on

    - one of the best foodie places in all of North America can't go wrong with restaurants in Montreal

    I would go through Anthony bourdains episodes on YouTube / amazon instant video/ Netflix on Montreal.

    Most importantly Montreal has over 200 festivals a year so make sure to check out what else is going on while your in town

    Absolutely, it has a completely different vibe from the rest of the city. I'd recommend starting from Basilique Notre-Dame (Metro Places d'Armes), checking out the inside (epic), walk over to Old Port area and stroll around for an hour or two. Sadly not as bustling during the winter, but the old architecture and cobblestone roads are charming.

    Hi Greg, I work in Old Montreal. It is well worth a visit, there are lots of beautiful old buildings, the notre dame church and it is right on the port. You have to be careful about the restaurants because many are over-priced tourist traps, but there are some good ones too. I would say definitely visit, but don't plan your whole visit around the old city. Montreal has a lot more to offer.
