I have visited Old Quebec a number of times over the past 6 years (perhaps upwards of 15 times). Every time I go there I fall in love with Old Quebec all over again. Take a day or two and just spend them walking around all of the cobblestone streets, visiting boutiques, cafes and local restaurants. Take your time, walk... More

I was here in Quebec City from Aug 21 -23, 2016 but i felt my stay was too short as i only had one full day to sightsee. Old Quebec is very quaint and charming. I love their classical European style architecture as they have many old buildings built in the 1700-1800s. Walking along the streets of Old Quebec, you... More

I try to visit every few years. This city is safe for a woman to travel to alone. It's preserved history is a gem. I love nothing more than sitting for hours at a cafe or restaurant garden in the lower city between exploring on foot. My favorite is Lapin Saute. Once you are there you don't need a car... More

We spent two days in "old" Quebec. We rode the fenicular down to the old part of town from the top promenade near the Fairmont Frontenac Hotel. It was like entering a movie set, with charming outdoor cafes, very old stone buildings with beautiful, colorful flowers everywhere, live music and shopping. Don't miss this city!!!

It is fun to walk Old Quebec. Beautiful architecture , lots of history, plus lots of shops and restaurants. Our group found this was a great place to have a guide give you a tour as you walk. Try Tours by Locals.

The old area of Quebec city is one of the best old cities that we have seen. The wall area is great and there is a lot to see and do. The numerous restaurants hav good quality food.

Picturesque and historic; beautiful skyline and waterfront with the famous Frontenac Chateau. Loved it all. Be ready fro French immersion although some English spoken in tourist spots. Stay nearby walking distance to Hilton Quebec.

Travel back in time, the building are so well preserved that they look new. Choice of shops, bars and restaurants is great but real experience is walking the Boardwalk in front of the Chateau Frontenac. Really must like to walk however and most is uphill to start (Ferry from Levis) but there is a Tramway but outta sight wait times.... More

If you want the feel of Europe without the cost, this is the place to go. Bring your walking shoes as you can spend several days walking the city and still not see everything. The buildings are old but beautiful and the atmosphere is great. So many great restaurants and lots to do. We took the countryside bus tour which... More
