Loved this town. Great charm, very clean and maintained with several dining and shopping options. There is a square and a walk-up to the inner city. The stone buildings and walls as well as the primarily French-spoken atmosphere adds to the Euro-feel. There are also a lot of art galleries. I'm told art buying is very popular. Additionally, there is... More

Old port has everything, beer festivals in the summer, fresh produce at the farmer's market, art galleries and delicious restaurants. If you don't want to hike up the hill you can take the mini electric bus or the funicular. Make sure to take a trip on the ferry, have a cruise on Louis Joliette and go up to the Chateau's... More

Very pleasant walk along the port starting with an indoor market that offers fruits vegetables and numerous specialties. Really worth a visit people are so welcoming. You will also be able to enjoy different antique shops on St Paul. Excellent restaurants where you can enjoy lunch or dinner.

This is a charming area with many cafe's, antique shops, art galleries and several charming hotels. You can turn a corner into a tiny old world alley only to see a huge cruise ship tied up at the end of the street. This is my favorite part of town and a great place to stay

You can't miss the Old Port on a visit to Quebec. Browse the small exclusive shops, stop at a cafe for a snack and take in the wonderful murals on the buildings. Can get busy at times, but you can always find a quieter area off the main streets.

We walked around the cobblestone streets, enjoyed the architecture, and had a great meal. No visit to Quebec would be complete without a tour of this area.
