Montreal: A City Worth Discovering
Old Montreal: A Happening Place
Attending the Eureka! Festival is also a great opportunity to discover a neighbourhood that will take your breath away.
Old Montreal is one of the city’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. Within just a few blocks, you can climb the rigging of a pirate ship, stroll historic cobblestone streets reminiscent of old Europe, or explore a cornucopia of shops, restaurants and outdoor terraces that embody the creativity and culture of this exceptional city.
And that’s not all. Want to set sail? Board a river shuttle. Craving the exotic? Chinatown is right next door. Want to see Montreal from a different angle? Cycle along the canal. Caught the science bug at Eureka? Satisfy your craving at the Science Centre.
In the evening, the Old Port of Montreal takes on a warm glow that will paint indelible memories: the historic buildings, shimmering in illumination that is itself a work of art, will make you feel like the actors in a magical movie.
You may even encounter a few ghosts or interact with the illumination of the Jacques Cartier Bridge.
