Some of the best shops featuring local artists as well as top restaurants can be found here. Loved the square area and church so reminiscent of old Europe as well as the unique flavor of the many shops and restaurants.

It is so romantic walking through the tiny streets and looking in the shop windows. There are so many interesting storefronts. It was terrific to ride the funicular down to the lower town to Le Petit Champlain to see the the little squares, and tiny shops to see how they exist today as they did 300 years ago.

This area is full of shops and restaurants. Stayed at Chateau Frontenac and walked down to this little village. Found a great little leather shop while digging around. Very quaint but beautiful.

Our family absolutely loved this beautiful spot! I've never seen an area so packed with beautiful details. The kids loved roaming the streets and picking out their favorite spots. Must visit the Maison Smith for macaroons!

Few shops, many restaurants, and several great bars. This is a classic street that doesnt allow cars. It has an old european feel but is distinctly Quebecois. Absolutely come to this neighborhood, especially during the day. It clears out a little at night, but that may also have been due to the timing of our trip (easter weekend).

True traditional art and boutiques are overwhelmed by cheap tourist boutiques that sell you T-Shirts or Buddha statues. Lost a lot of appeal from a few years back. More a tourist trap now. Sad!

There's a certain magical quality to the Small Champlain that I can't quite describe. There's plenty of boutique shops and amazing restaurants (Lapin Sauté anyone?) to visit. Its right by the antique district too.

A visit to Old Quebec would not be complete without a visit to the Quartier du Petit Champlain. It definitely has that European charm with great restaurants and boutiques. Absolutely charming!
