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 stayed at great B&B about 20 minute walk. Lots to explore, beautiful view looking out over the harbour, lots of shops, restaurants etc. The streets can get quite congested if there are cruise ships visiting.

I did like the various neighborhoods within the city, inside and outside the wall. I tried to spend time in each area. It was cool but not too cool.

Our hotel was in Upper Town very close to the Provencial Parliament and the Citadel. Upper town has great variety: shops, museums, government offices, churches, parks, hotels and hundreds of restaurants. Unlike Lower Town it is much more diverse but it is a very hilly...More

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.
