This is in old town - it's quaint, European , interesting and a people gathering place. There's shops, cafes, just a really cool place to hang out.

The 17th and 18th century houses on this wonderful little street have been converted into shops that go beyond the teeshirts and souvenirs so many other areas in the world have succumbed to. You can buy handprinted silk scarves, and pear butter and Inuit art. All with the feel of Old World charm. Except you are in Canada. It was... More

The stairs (breaking neck stairs) are there since centuries, only the visual changed (a lot of restaurant grown up as compared to old photos)... but the charm remains....

Very nice street full of shopping, restaurants and people. Very authentic Canadian ambiance. A few steps down Old Quebec - you can take the funicular. You can miss it.

It's hard to describe how cute and quaint and pretty it is to walk out of the funicular and see this street before your eyes. Lovely stroll, street musicians, high end shops alongside tourist shops. One of my favorite spots in Old Quebec.

My spouse and I enjoyed a romantic stroll through the shops and restaurants of Old Quebec during our American Thanksgiving holiday. Truly old world and beautiful.

A quaint and cute place to visit. It is also called the little Europe in Canada. Just walking around and visit the shop here. You can come here in both winter and summer. We heard that it is even more fantastic during Christmas. Highly recommended...

This is the must place in Quebec city. There are many specialized boutiques full of artisan products. The atmosphere is always great, at night, in winter... Not a tourist trap, but a genuine small shop street of European character.

Lovely art and restaurants on a narrow, cobblestone street. Plenty to look at, enjoy, and buy. Love it!
