If you are staying in the Upper City, hop on the Finiculare or walk down to this absolutely gorgeous street. Quaint little shops and restaurants in centuries old buildings. Just charming.

Loved Quebec City and this area is very pretty particularly at night when lit up for Christmas. Easy to walk down to from the Upper Town and we caught the funicular back one time, and walked another. It is all pretty close and easy to get to.

Charming with lots of shops and boutiques. There are many excellent restaurants here as well. Located on the shores of the St. Lawerence river under the old walled city of Vieux Quebec.

I went after the new year and with the snow and decoration this area feels like it's some fairy tale. So many nice stores.

The main reason to visit at Christmas is to walk among the lights on these streets. And they did not disappoint -- quaint, beautiful, well-appointed with several inviting restaurants as well.

We visited this area during the christmas season and it was so magical! It feels like you're walking through a historic city in Europe. Christmas decorations made it feel so alive and inviting to shop. Our family enjoyed it very much. Luckily we were there on a night that was not too crowded. Loved it! Definitely a place to visit!
