There was so much to see in the Old Port, from the architecture of all the buildings, the Chateau, the shops and restaurants... We had a ball and I have been in Quebec so many times but I can always find something new to see and explore.

The first settlers built churches, homes, and businesses at the foot of the cliffs, in old Port Quebec. Love the age of the buidling, the Victory Church, and the fact, that this is where Quebec city was all founded.

Old Quebec, fantastic place to walk and to explore. I've been there three times: 2 in autumn 1 in winter. If you ask me the best time of the year, for me it's impossible to answer!!! I think that these city is very nice in all seasons!!! And similar to Cartagena de Indias in Colombia, very nice nice at day... More

Our hotel was in this area and we loved it. Not as touristy as Upper town, great restaurants and quaint historic streets. Don't miss visiting the market filled with amazing fruits and other foods. Much quieter and relaxed than other areas of town.

I loved it because there were so many things to do. I watched them manually raise the tide and saw a huge boat, and the Notre Dame Basilica is right there. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

The old port is a great place to see. Walk to everything including shops, restaurants, craft huts, local artists, fresh fruits and vegetables and buskers!

Quebec is just a great city, this is just one of many charming areas. Murals, architecture etc. really worth seeing. We enjoyed just strolling through the neighborhood. There was a Earth Friendly program set up, interesting modern art in the park and we loved the market.

Our experience was somewhat marred by a lot of construction, and an open-air concert being set up (unfortunately, we did not attend the concert). Nice area, but if you have only a day or two in Quebec City, I'd recommend spending them elsewhere instead.

Quebec has something for everyone. You could never get bored in this city. Fabulous shops, Art, street cafes and Art markets. Very clean and well kept city- a joy to stay in. Great for Pokemon Go as well for my kids....
