I really enjoyed seeing all the Christmas decorations and lights. There are a lot of interesting shops to browse through. Be sure to visit towards the evening where you can enjoy the beautiful Christmas displays/lights.

There are some neat shops in the area, but overall, it's a typical tourist area. The shops are generally overpriced than the ones just up the hill. Nice to walk through when not crowded, but it gets crowded easily, even in December.

What a beautiful to experience, and particularly at Christmas! Every shop keepergoes out of his or her way to ensure a hearty welcome- the pride in their heritage is so evident in the way they beautifully decorate for the holidays. The cobblestone streets are lined with amazing historical buildings, that are home to charming restaurants and pubs. A truly unique... More

Loved the decorations and many unique shops. There were carol singers who sung in both English and French. Santa was out for photos. Overall, absolutely charming!

We were here in December when everything was decorated for the holidays. The overall atmosphere was pretty magical as a result. It's a nice area to walk around, shop and eat. Most of the stores sell typical tourist stuff, but interspersed with those stores are more interesting boutiques.

I love the buildings that surround this square in the lower city. It is classic architecture that dates from the late 1600's. The museum entrance on the square is also a place to visit as it covers the history of the settlement and the genealogy of the Quebecois.

We just came back from a month of traveling in Europe and we spend a night in Quebec City. This city has notting to envy other beautiful cities in Europe. Le Petit Champlain with all the Christmas lights was just ferique!!!!!

It is a lovely walk in the Quartier du Petit Champlain. Lovely shops, excellent restaurants. Very interesting one of a kind boutiques. Nice walk near the St. Lawrence River. Pavements were well maintained after the snow so it was not slippery.
