Toured the area in the afternoon of the previous day and the evening of the next. It was snowing on the later and the walk was so peaceful Surprisingly, many of the shops are closed (Wed) being so close to Christmas. The setting is so surreal

Very charming area of the city, many shops, etc. Quaint with charming shops and restaurants and galleries.. Though most shops are souvenier shops and don't have as many unique items as I had hoped.

This is such a lovely historic street that the shop fronts and old buildings would probably be terrific at any time of the year. However at Christmas all the shop owners put in trees with white lights and decorate their entry ways and flower boxes so the holiday cheer is palpable. Take the funicular or stair case down from the... More

We enjoyed walking the streets of Petit Chaplain. So many cute shops and places to dine or have a drink.

A tiny touristy area below the Old City (Chateau Frontenac). You can also walk over to the ferry to Levis (and back) for a view of the city

This is one of the pretties streets. Narrow , with shops and restaurants on both sides. The food is always great. And the shops hold many wonderful treasures by local artisans. Nice area to spend a day.

It's a wonderful place to walk around; located at the base of the Château Frontenac. Its full of little shops and great restaurants. So if you have the time, take a walk around and have a light meal.

This is a very quaint area full of shops and restaurants. You can easily lose track of time just wandering about here. This is a lovely area to just walk around and wander about. Makes you forget you are still in North America.

Supposedly a touristy haunt in every guidebook, Petit Champlain nevertheless captivates visitors with its quaint row houses of eateries and shops. The government was going to raze the whole place and build a car park but some people bought and eventually sold it to a cooperative of artisans who sell their crafts there. This is a far better outcome for... More
