Great place to shop and find stuff you won't find anywhere else...the only "hic" is the stairs...you have to be able to go up/down multiple staircases.

It is just such a walkable area of town. Great to shop, eat, and people watch. I took so many pictures in this area. There are some cute shops that specialize in maple products.

This is one of my favorite streets in Old Quebec. Cobblestone streets lined with lovely boutiques and cafes. The architecture is beautiful and charming.

Fantastic atmosphere and views of an old city area with lots of charm. Great little shops to look thru, and lots to take photos of, especially if your a photographer. Will be back again for sure.

This section of lower Quebec has quite a big character to be called petit. Lots of shopping. Lots of people. Best enjoyed when we took a leisurely stroll as we checked each boutique, shop or what have you here. Definitely qualifies in a lot of ways as a tourist trap. But this is one tourist trap I truly enjoyed.

Exploring the narrow winding streets is a fun way to stimulate the imagination about early Canada. Some Colbble stones may be a challenge for strollers and wheelchairs .
