Very historical, great shopping and wonderful restaurants! We took the ferry to Levi's for better views of Quebec.

“Fish Market worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The Fish Market and Farmers Market was a fun place to visit with the locals. A walk in the Marina was relaxing. Found a nice Baguette shop on St. Paul

“Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

It is a walkers paradise. There is something interesting around every comer. The Art Galleries are housed in magnificent old buildings .It is well oirth the trip to view both the art and the restorations of the buildings. It is very well done. There are restaurants galore as well as interesting boutique stores. The musical interludes throughout the area were very much appreciated. There were many places to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Enjoy!

“Good and getting great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

So easy and convenient to all that Quebec City has to offer. And remarkably quiet at night. The upcoming St.-Roch neighborhood has very interesting shopping and delicious restaurants. And the public market offers tastings of many delicious Quebec products like Fois Gras and Ice Cider
