Place Royale is a very picturesque square in the Old Town in the Vieux Port. It is a pleasant experience to sit outside a cafe, French style, enjoying a coffee and watching the world go by. Hopeless if you want to take photographs though as there are literally hundreds of tourists, particularly large groups on walking tours, standing around.

It is a must when visiting Quebec , you can just walk there look at the boutique have a drink or just sit there.The street and the building are exceptionel. Any time of the day is great but i must say in the evening it is a bit romantic.

So good to just stroll around, check out some shops and have breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. Beautiful art pieces just placed around the streets makes it extra special

Everything looked like it was part of a life-sized painting. I love the vibe the area gives off to everyone there.

You feel like you've stepped back in time and over the Atlantic- the original spot where Champlain founded the city.

Very nice place to walk around and enjoy the scenery. The people are friendly and they speak English. It feels like your in Europe and not in Canada. The area is clean and worth the time to visit.

Sit. Have an ice cream at Smith's and watch the world go by. Just a nice relaxing spot in the middle of Old Quebec.
