The Old Port is an area with lots of shops restaurants and the like. I assume put together for people off cruise boats and other tourists. You pass thru it on your way to the sights in the Old Town and there are some museums...More

Nice scenery- great shops to walk around and see. No places to eat. Merchandise over priced. Not much to buy. Reading Market in PA has a better selection. This is just a port turned market. Worth seeing but just your average port.

Great shopping. Everything you can imagine. Good prices. Good eating. Even has a Christmas Store! The buildings are amazing. Just like walking the streets in Europe.

We loved walking around this area. There are many charming shops and quaint, small restaurants. You have to walk down a steep hill from the upper town. We especially loved looking in the many, interesting art galleries.

Lovely area, cobblestones etc. Unfortunately as we were visiting at the end of the season many places were closed. Those that were open made their shops and restaurants look lovely from outside with flowers and lights etc

Well the tourists for a start!!!! But then without us where would they be. Loved wandering the streets around here and finding a good spot for lunch. Can't recall its name but the french onion soup looked amazing.

Beautiful old city, Saint-Malo (Brittany, France) style, with old stoned houses. Beautiful pictures to take at all time of the day, all time of the year, even under deep quebecer winter. In summer, take time to listen the street artists and singers, celebration of the...More

The stop you need is number five. Take a look at the map and you will see it's the closet. The big red bus (double decker) web site will give you this. Enjoy!
