There are several boats that you can take for a tour on the river. Usually there are small cruise ships also in port. There are many restaurants and shops to stop and have a snack in. Love the historical feel of the place.

This is a lovely food market in Quebec. A place to sample wine, cheese, smoked meats and chocolate. You can have a snack or lunch on the outdoor patio. Pretty views of the St. LAWRENCE river too.

Really not worth a visit in my opinion. It looks like an old industrial estate. There are so many more things to see in Quebec city!

This is a nice walk from Old Quebec if the weather is lovely as it was for my visit. But don't have high expectations for the farmers' market. It's just okay. Some people enjoy getting meats and cheeses and having lunch behind the market outside.

Lovely to walk along the water of the old port. Hard to believe that the whole area of the Lower Town was once grungy. Talk a stroll to the market - a large market with a wonderful variety of fruit, baked goods, meats, wines and items made in Quebec. A lovely stroll!

Been here both in winter snd in summer. While both have their bright spots, I prefer the summer time because of all the excitement. There There are buskers everywhere and they shut down streets so tyat the tourists can enjoy themselves without having to worry about traffic.

My husband and I stayed in a condo in the old port on a recent trip to Quebec and we are so glad we did. We liked the Vieux Port even better than Old Quebec city. It was full of quaint buildings adorned with beautiful window boxes. There are many restaurants and shops and we also visited the Marche every... More
