Charming environment

This is probably the most charming area of Old Quebec. It is worth strolling around but would be better if there weren't so many souvenir stores selling items made in China.

This area is below the old city on the waterfront.Can walk down or take a tram down the hillside. Lots of shops that have more to offer than what is above in old Quebec. Good restaurants with outdoor seating. The hike back up the hill is a killer take the tram back up.

Enjoyed the beautiful location. Old Quebec is a fabulous place to have a mini European vacation, but much cheaper. The food was great and the shopping plentiful. I really enjoyed our hotel.

You must walk up and down rue Petit Champlain. It is one store after another of different shops. Some even have the artist there working (silk scarves) and offering details regarding their art. Prices are reasonable not overly priced. Every store you enter you are cordially acknowledged in French and English. For a minimal fee you can even enjoy maple... More

Anything Canadian and then some can be found on Rue Petit Champlain, including many restaurants. We enjoyed a great lunch in the restaurant Le Repaire on a landing overlooking Rue Petit Champlain.
