Every month, EC Montreal puts a tour of Old Montreal on our social events calendar. Old Montreal is definitely one of the most magical and romantic attractions of the city! It’s old European charm with cobblestone streets, sidewalk cafés and street performers add to its charm!
The tour consists of a visit to Notre Dame Basilica, a visit to the quartier des artistes (artist district) and down to the port. Walking along the docks at the Old Port is so exciting. You have a breathtaking view of Montreal’s skyline and you can see all the beautiful boats and yaghts lined up along the dock. Many people host parties on their boats and it is much fun watching Montrealers celebrating summer!
People can rent out bikes or paddle boats at the Old Port and take a scenic tour along the shore line.
It is also a great spot to watch the fireworks during the summer fireworks exhibition!
EC Montreal students can’t help falling in love with Montreal!
