Much like Basse-Ville, it's gorgeous and timeless. Go walk around and enjoy!! You'll feel like you're not in North America or in this time period. I particularly liked taking the funiculaire up and down and watching the views.

Lots of nice restaurants, cafes, and little shops. Everything is walkable and it has great historic charm.

We were there when the first snow hit Eastern Canada. The streets were hard to walk as the snow was slushy. There was so much snow by the street that parking on the streets were not recommended. But I guess Quebecois were used to it. Enjoyed the architecture and compact little city. Will come back in the summer...without the snow.

I love going back to Quebec city; it's like going to Europe with its old 18th Century Houses, cobble stones streets, easy walk to shops and restaurants. The best is to find a good hotel or B&B in the city itself and walk where ever you want to go. There is always something to do, to see, or to listen... More

We loved walking around upper town in the evening and ducking into restaurants for dinner by a nice warming fire. When we were there they had started their 4day New years Festival so it was great to see people out and about and all the lights and decorations.

A lot of good shopping and places to eat from high to low range in value. Pizza mickey dees tim hortons were all there. Also, some standard stores besides the high end like Aldo and LeChateau. Were non slip boots it can be hilly. You almost have to be in shape to handle the area.

The upper town has the capitol, St Jean for shopping, Frontenac and great steep hilly streets of Europe like old city with great views. Most of downtown hotels are located here. St Jean has many wonderful and unique stores that should not be missed.
