“Historical Classic and Great Shops/Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

You can't go to Quebec City and miss visiting this area. A bit of a walk up/down stairs if arriving from the Chateau Frontenac, easy walk if parking along the old port. Also site of Red Bull's Crashed Ice in the March time frame (quite the event with large crowds).

“One of the most beautiful places in Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Experience Europe right here in Canada - one of our favourite places to visit. There is something about the ambiance of Old Quebec - whether in winter or summer.

“European Flair in Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I've visited (and stayed) in Old Quebec on numerous times and it's a place I look forward to visiting. Rich in history but also quite commercial. It's the number one attraction in Quebec City. Very cold in the winter, but their Winter Carnival is worth experiencing. Since it's full of tourists, English-speaking workers (hotels, shops, restaurants) are all around.
