“Like in Europe !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This little pedestrian zone in The Old City let us feel like in a middle aged village in Europe. It was nice to discover this place in Canada.

“What a Neat Stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This area of Old Quebec was a delightful stroll our second night in the Old City. The quaint shops, overview of the harbor and delicious ice cream shops made a for a great evening. We walked down the steps and took the cable car back up. Lot's of fun.

It's a great strip of shops and restaurants. Very touristic but some nice restaurants and shopping if that's your thing...

“Spotless, compact area with a European flavour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Easy to explore and wander through as it's a small area. Many streetside cafes to stop and drink, eat or people watch. There are wonderfully restored stone buildings, tiny shops and galleries, window boxes overflowing with flowers and greenery and a few buskers adding flavour, especially a singing chair-dancing fiddler who played traditional music. A wonderful full building wall mural should be searched out.

“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Le Quartier du Petit Champlain is just charming with its little shop, restaurant and coffee shop! It is a place where you have to stop by during the visit if only for the atmosphere.
