1st, the scenery. Many shops offer a multitude of products, many made in Quebec. In 2015/02, there were sculptures made of ice. Many restaurants as well. Busy with tourists and regulars. Recommend. You could take nice pictures there.

The world is clearly in love with European- styled, cobble-stone-path shopping districts. Whether you are in North America or Asia, the charm of the European streets, which transport you through time, are yearned for by many, and Canada is no exemption. Quartier Petit Champlain in Quebec City fulfills that role. It is the oldest commercial district in North America and... More

The title says it all. This is a must see if you're in Quebec City. Boutiques, local designers, restaurants, theater, music and always with a nice decor. Very romantic. Small area.

So beautiful! It's one of the most picturesque spots in Canada and you get some good exercise climbing that hill. Don't miss it.

To be in Europe without being in Europe! That's what this place exudes, old charming European city that just invites you to walk around and enjoy the sites. We visited during Christmas and were not disappointed!!

Quebec City is a regular haunt for me due to business interests, but is always a pleasure to bring friends and family to this location and see through their eyes the delight of turning the corner and descending the stairs towards the quartier. I was fortunate enough to take my partner to visit both during the fall and this past... More

At the bottom of Côte de la Montagne, escalier Casse-Cou and the funicular, lies the Petit-Champlain district, a beautiful neighborhood resembling a quaint European village. Quartier Petit Champlain comprises narrow streets lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques and bistros. This area is a great place to visit boutiques during the day and it has a different feel at night, very romantic. Beautifully... More

The combination of small shops located in buildings that have over 200 years, friendly shopkeepers that will take care of you either in French or English, the funicular that takes you all the way to Chateau Frontenac and other wonders makes this place irreplaceable... You can not say that you were in Old Quebec and you did not visit this... More
