so pretty and quaint

It is full of history and was just so lovely to stroll through. Beautiful. Well worth all the stairs! Wonderful little stores to wander through.

I was introduced to the area on a walking tour of old Montreal, ending in the Quarter due Petit Champlain. There was a good variety of shops and restaurants, many of which are apparently frequented by locals as well as tourists. I spent some time trying on outfits in a unique clothing shop, and looking at kitchen ware down the... More

Lovely area, we wandered up and down and looked in the shops and art gallery's, even bought a small handmade sculpture from a gallery as a souvenir of our time here, bought lunch at a little café and sat outside people watching in the sunshine.

We loved every corner of this place! After the walk we went to the riverside to sit and relax. Really pleasant experience!

I love it here! I found myself coming back and back again because it was so beautiful and wonderful. I felt like I was in Europe! Everything is so charming, complete with cute stores, a view of the St. Lawrence and twinkle lights! I would certainly recommend coming here, the walk through is so lovely.

We decided to approach the lower city by walking down the hill and circling around from the Vieux Port. The lower town became more and more busy as we approached Petit Champlain, and the number of shops increased. There are some fun shops and restaurants in this area, along with a couple of attractive little plazas. As expected in a... More

A lovely area with lots of restaurants and shops and the feeling of being in an old European town. Can walk along the river, take a cruise or just seat and enjoy a drink and watch the people.

Le Quartier du Petit Champlain was our favorite part of Quebec City. There are little shops, cafes, and boutiques that resemble Europe. While the streets were a bit crowded, it was such a fun time walking around and exploring the various side streets. The murals, in my opinion, are the best part--both are very intricately done and are stunning.
