We settled in at the B&B and then made our way into town by bus and subway. It was easy and fun. We took the subway back and then walked the bus leg through the commercial part of ‘our’ neighborhood.
It was almost 5pm by the time we got going and not having eaten since dawn we were hungry so we went straight into Old Town, Vieux-Montreal and the nearby Vieux-Port, for some sightseeing and food.
This is the Place Jacques-Cartier, a public square created in 1847. It is surrounded by restaurants, with street players and vendors mingling in. Nearby are the oldest streets in Montreal all pretty touristified with galleries, shops, and restaurants.
