The old section of Montreal, lined with lovely old historic buildings, welcomes visitors with great shopping and fine dining. Horse-drawn carriages take visitors through the cobbled streets and past the open squares. While Montreal itself is a vibrant modern city, Old Montreal down by the waterfront is where most tourists come to soak up the atmosphere. Some of the must-see places in Old Montreal include Rue Bonsecours and the landmark Marché Bonsecours in the old town hall building, the interior of the beautiful Notre-Dame Basilica, the lively Place Jacques-Cartier, and the 1870s City Hall.
