Haute Ville may be a bit less overrun by tourists and for this reason is worth a leisurely stroll. It sports numerous shops and restaurants, some of them not too pricey.

We went to the Upper Town after hours strolling in the Lower Town and it was like entering a whole different city. The streets opened up, they were wide and filled with buses and horse drawn carriages and cars. The statues were huge and the buildings higher. Of course, the hotel dominates the area! Walk around the boardwalk area looking over the river. See the inside of the hotel Frontenac, photo the statues, the floral displays, then walk to the restaurants. Stop into 1640 bistro for a really good and very reasonably priced lunch, then walk down the artists street at the end of the block and chose a picture of Quebec from one of a dozen if more artists selling their work. Great afternoon!

This was a great place to stroll...the cobblestone streets, the quaint little shops and let us not forget the restaurants. It was like going abroad but I didn't have to take a plane. Just a nice easy drive.

We walked the cobblestone streets and entered many a small shop. Enjoyed the Christmas store and the piazza with all the fall decorations. Had a enjoyable view of the city (in and out). This is a wonderfulful place to tour for a day or a week. There is so much to see. We tried the horse drawn carriage ride, too. It was a tad pricey, but well worth it for what we learned about the city .

Fun to walk the different streets and after a while, we walked the same streets a few times more--it's relatively small area packed with many historical churches, buildings, and shops. Be adventuresome and take different streets to get to the attractions.
