One of my favorite cities in all of North America. The architectural design of the building, the restaurants, the stores, it's like a European city at every corner!

We visited lower town first and thought that was good, but we were blown away by the beauty of upper town. Sensational.

Even though it is not as old as the Old Town area it still has plenty of charm with all the shops and restaurants it has to offer. Plenty to see and explore.

many choices of places to eat. They are prepared for the tourist and have Menu's at the front outside of all the entry doors. It was appreciated because it helped you decide if this restaurant was for you or not. Stores were all interesting.

Lots of shopping and eating here. The restaurants seem to be lots of variations of the same in a variety of prices. You can get exactly the same meal at several restaurants for reasonable to over prices, so beware! Lots of tourist trinket shops too....More

we spent most of our time in Quebec walking up and down the streets in Haute-Ville. There are some larger commercial stores (Simons) and lots of more independent stores. Tons of souvenir shops. Loads of restaurants. No shortage of sweets.

We walked around the upper and lower town but took a city tour with a tour company to see where we wanted to spend more time. You can call in the visitor centre and get plenty of information that will help you.
