The Haute-Ville is chocked full of eating, sleeping and drinking places. Some are your average joint that you'd find in any tourist area....but we found plenty of good to very good to excellent spots to keep any tourist busy and happy. We would rate our hotel as excellent (Le Manior d'Auteuil) and most of the eating places averaged very good.... More

There is so much history in this town, its hard to pack it all in in a weekend - but we certainly did our best. The Chateau Frontenac, the view of river, the old time look of the town, many (many) shops - and the restaurants! Definitely a must-see place to go.

Great walk up the hill. Stopped at the Frontenac(??) and walked around the entire upper level of the city. Great views. saw a lot of the cannon they had used to defend the city.

We are in our eighties and have some mobility issues. Found bus tour almost useless. Should have spent the same amount in a one hour tour with car and guide. As we drove around and around could not identify the statues or locations which we had read about. Very discouraging.

We enjoyed walking the streets and looking at the light displays for the light festival and Christmas. The Nortre Dame Cathedral was beautiful. We attended mass there for New Years.

We spent hours wandering around this area looking at the cute shops and the architecture of the buildings. We found it easy to walk around this area, even with a bit of snow on the sidewalks. We also found it very easy to walk from the Lower to Upper town and did it on a daily basis (sometimes 2 times... More

Lots to see in the upper town. Although the terrain is hilly, it's not excessively strenuous to walk around. We stayed within a few blocks of the magnificent hotel, the Chateau Frontenac, which was an ideal location, as it was within walking distance of all of the best sites that the upper city had to offer. From that area, a... More
