Basse-Ville (Lower Town) is all along the edge of the river. The port, bicycle and walker's boardwalk, access to the ferry and river cruise boats, and Petit Champlain district are all good reasons to check out this area of Quebec City. The Funicalaire lift can easily get you back up for only 2$. This section of town is a must if you plan on doing Vieux (Old) Quebec.

I have been traveling to Quebec City for many years and remember lower town as needing some special attention. Well, the City of Quebec has been doing just that! The farmers market is excellent. The shops and restaurants are great with some old neighborhood establishments that are wonderful and fairly priced.

Lots of antique stores, boutiques and restaurants. Take a walk and check out the train station. Worthwhile
