After visiting Lower Town, Upper Town is a must see as well! Loved both...great historic finds, shopping, and the people of Quebec City are extremely gracious. We loved our time in this beautiful city!

If you just want to walk or go in small shops, this part of the city is perfect. There are many local shops and restaurants.

I have written a review about Lower Town. Please read that. Upper town is gorgeous, no doubt (all of Quebec City is gorgeous). But it lacks the vibrancy of Lower Town,which I personally like.

Prepare for a great walk for a 1 day to hit the spots in this area. Finding a good place to eat relax and then hit the road again. Very nice and charming...just be careful where to park as prices in the lots differ.

Lots to see...historical buildings, churches, monuments. Horse drawn carriages abound. Outside cafes, cobble stone streets, get a map and plan out your strategy....there is so much to take in. We did 2 days on Upper city and one day in lower.. street musicians to liten to when you rest.

Basically, you have the famous Fairmount hotel, the funicular, the Francophone museum, some shops and eateries.

This is such a beautiful city. I strongly recommend the walk through Upper Town, even during cold days it's nice to see the city.
