Morning Day or Night--this is the place to walk around in. We walked up and down, sitting down to eat and drink along the way. You can't go wrong here, but be sure to place reservations if going to the most popular restaurants in the evening.

Be sure to make the trip down the steps from the main old town area. We found the 'civilization' museum which is free on Wednesdays in the winter.

During the holiday season the market is transformed to a Holiday Market. Excellent selection of gifts, meats, cheeses, preserves and more. More French speakers than in other parts of the city, but no problem communicating.

We walked around the old port in the late afternoon, enjoying our last day in Quebec. There is a very popular bike path that runs along the port.

Being here on business, I only had about 3 hours to dedicate to exploring and eat lunch prior to my flight home. However, the old port was cool, bohemian, and fun to walk around.
