“Wander around, indulge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Here's a chance to be a flaneur among some of the most beautiful and historic stone buildings in all North America. Challenge yourself to find the wonderful small house where Rene Levesque lived when he was Premier of the province.

“A lot of energy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Take the funicular up to to the Haut-Ville. Lots of shops and good restaurants. There seems to be a lot of energy here . From here it is a short walk to the Citadel.

“Well of course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

It seems a bit silly to review an area that absolutely every tourist is going to visit. Old Quebec's Upper City, which is the area inside the walls and gates, is a lovely area to stroll in, dine in, learn history in, and browse in. There are plenty of tee shirt shops and tourist-trap restaurants, but a little comparison shopping, and on-line research, should help you make good choices.

“A taste of Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Thought we were in Europe with the quaint shops and restaurants. Rue Saint Jean and Rue Saint Louis have most of the shopping and dining. But there are cathedrals, parks, and lots of Kodak moments.

“Definitely don't miss this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

If you're here for just one day, this is the section of town you really need to explore. From the Chateau Frontenac, to the St. Lawrence, to the historic battlefields area, to the National Assembly of Quebec and all the other streets with restaurants and shops, it will take your breath away.
