This 2.5 hour gastronomic walk will include various tastings and a glass a wine! You will discover the culinary, cultural and historical charms of the oldest district of Montreal. Hosted in old warehouses and showrooms of the 19th era, some food boutiques open their doors to make you taste their delicacies. Through small and narrow cobblestone streets, the guide explains the influence of the Amerindians and the nuns on our food habits, and how the venue of the World Expo in 1967 brought exotic food on our tables.
