our insider tip:

Old-Montreal holds more than a handful of Montreal icons, including; Bonsecours Market, Place Jacques Cartier, Notre-Dame Basilica and Saint-Paul Street. Being so close to the downtown area, it's easy to get to the shops of Sainte-Catherine Street before going up Saint-Denis Street and its many restaurants. Also worth visiting is the Olympic Stadium and its inclined tower, the highest one in the world. The area is also home to the world-famous Biodome and Botanical Gardens, and is well worth a day trip from central Montreal. For visitors who want to take their visit even further, we recommend spending a few hours strolling in upscale Outremont, admiring the designer's windows and the luxurious villas owned by the city's VIP people.
