Owner description: The hilly section of the city known as Upper Town developed later than the original settlement it overlooks.

The Haute-Ville is chocked full of eating, sleeping and drinking places. Some are your average joint that you'd find in any tourist area....but we found plenty of good to very good to excellent spots to keep any tourist busy and happy. We would rate our hotel as excellent (Le Manior d'Auteuil) and most of the eating places averaged very good. Our best surprise was the restaurant aux Anciens Canadiens--their best dishes are game, so don't go there unless you like game. To be fair Quebec City has lots of areas that offer food, drink and lodging at more reasonable prices than the Upper Town, but they lack the old city historical aspects, beauty and walkability.

There is so much history in this town, its hard to pack it all in in a weekend - but we certainly did our best. The Chateau Frontenac, the view of river, the old time look of the town, many (many) shops - and the restaurants! Definitely a must-see place to go.

Great walk up the hill. Stopped at the Frontenac(??) and walked around the entire upper level of the city. Great views. saw a lot of the cannon they had used to defend the city.

We are in our eighties and have some mobility issues. Found bus tour almost useless. Should have spent the same amount in a one hour tour with car and guide. As we drove around and around could not identify the statues or locations which we had read about. Very discouraging.
