“Loved walking the streets”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

If you are looking for bargains, this is not the place but if you are looking for nice places to shop and a variety of artistic items, you will be in heaven. The area is quaint and enjoyable.

“The heart of Old Quebec”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Dating back to the 1600's, this section of the city is filled with restored buildings, restaurants, and galleries. Very nice. It's located down by the river which involves a going and up and down the hill from the main part of Old Quebec. May be challenging for older people, but you can take the funicular.

“Nicest place in Quebec / Canada”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

A must see of Quebec!
Petit Champlain is very charming, it has some resemblance with Montmartre in Paris except you find it at the bottom of the funiculaire instead of on top - but if you have enough legs, the stairs are part of the charm.
I would advise to go during day light and night time (magical lighting) if you like photography because it will offer very different photos.

“Very touristy”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Pretty area to walk around, but lots of touristy shops and cafes. Had trouble finding something vegetarian to eat. But, shopkeepers are mostly friendly.

“Lovely european-like quarter of Quebec City”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Within walking distance of the cruise port is this lovely quarter of lower Quebec City. With narrow streets, outdoor cafes, and shops, you will feel like you are in a European town. My husband and I enjoyed an afternoon there during one of our cruise port stops. You can sit and enjoy a snack or meal and watch the people go by. There are lots of shops ranging from typical souvenier shops to Quebec hand crafts, art gallaries, fashion, jewelry, kitchen shops, etc.
