I took my son to Old Quebec for a cultural experience and it did not disappoint! We stayed in a B&B which afforded us interactions with French speaking Montreal residents and the hospitality of a true Quebec hostess. Everything is in Wall ng distance, but make sure you are in shape to walk steep hills. There is something for everyone,... More

Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate due to extreme cold temperatures, so we weren't able to walk like we planned. The carnival du Quebec was in its last days and a lot of people were entering. Hopefully in another trip we may be able to enjoy more. Still, we drove around the city and enjoyed people watching, especially the ones... More

Lots of fun shops and cool restaurants to visit. It is in an older section of the town so it has a very European feel to this part of the city

For a true sense of Europe, one must see and experience Old Quebec. If you have never been to Europe, you will feel as though you have. I spent 4 days here thinking it was too many days for such a small city. I could have spent more days. So many experiences to be had of you take your time.... More

I could walk the streets of Old Quebec every day and still be in awe of the architecture. In addition to the buildings, there are fantastic views from the green spaces of the city, Parliament, the waterfront, etc. Also, there are so many food options (French dominant, but some great Italian and Mediterranean as well).

It was lightly snowing, there was an air of excitement and jubilation walking the streets of the Old City. Rather than take the Break Neck staircase, we rode the funicular up and it was exhiliarating. Great views, great food, great people of the Old City.

I just love this place! Walking into some of these old places I can almost envision settlers and infantrymen. Old stone and wood buildings, rough-hewn rafters and worn out floors and stairs...the cobblestone streets and low doorways. I'm Canadian and I feel like this is such a wonderful part of our history. This is one of the oldest quarters in... More

A great time had by every family member. We missed out on the snow this year but the atmosphere and food in the old town definitely compensated.

With softly falling snow, and everything blanketed in white this section of the city is worth a visit. Lots of touristy shops, with goods priced accordingly. Beautiful old buildings.
