There are definitely cities with more beautiful ports, but the old port has some unique sites. The Open Market is a trip in itself, with tons of fresh produce, dairy, wines, chocolates, flowers, syrup, and even a cafeteria. I didn't feel like a tourist here, altho some might disagree. I just enjoyed the friendly chattiness of the vendors as they explained their products and where they were from. The silos provide the screen for an interesting animation/show at about 10 pm every night; be sure to stand/sit where you can hear the accompanying music/sound. The Marie Clarisse is a huge sailing ship that is docked at the Old Port, also, with tours on varying days of the week. Make sure to check the schedule before traveling there just to see the ship; we missed the tours twice before we figured out the schedule. Also, the free Cirque du Soleil show at the Agora at 9:15pm 6 days/week near the Old Port is outstanding! Wear comfortable shoes and be aware of the numerous bike paths as bikes have the right of way (over pedestrians) in Quebec City.
