this is such a lovely place and such a nice place to just stroll around taking in the sites and sounds.
J'y demeure. I live here in Québec city. Lower town plenty of sites to see...and things to do. Plein de chose a faire et à voir en basse ville. Easy access to uppertown...accés façile pour la haute ville. Bistros, boutiques, restaurantes, marina, St. Laurence river, ferry to the South shore, bike rentals, shopping, historical sites, beer and wine ....Bistros, boutiques,... More
Spend hours and hours exploring this beautiful area...quaint shops and cafes...a picture postcard at every turn...but bring your wallet!!! $$$
Michelle took us on a tour in her van and it was great because it felt like minus 30 with the wind and the snow. We probably would have saw more if we were walking, but the weather did not cooperate.
Take the Funiculare down the mountain to the lower village for a stroll through a really charming French village. Wonderful art galleries abound in this area and are really worth checking out. If you visit Quebec without going to the lower village you are missing a great deal. It is an easy and quick trip and you will be transported... More
It is very worth the walk, very scenic, quaint look and feel. One of the nicest place to visit in Quebec if you can brave the stairs!!
The lower town is overrun with art galleries, which is wonderful, but somewhat surprising, as historically this was the less affluent neighborhood. Now it's almost too precious. Don't get me wrong- it's beautiful; the buildings and streets are as or more iconic and (to me) beautiful as Haute-Ville, and the Place Royale is definitely worth a visit for the history... More
I went just after the carnival, so I could see many ice sculptures. If you are staying in the upper town you can take the funicular or walk. It is also a good idea to take the ferry to Levis because is really close by.
