Many nice shops and restaurants. Just like medieval Europe. Cobble stones and all. If you are staying in the “upper” part of the city, take the funicular in front of the Chateau Frontenac for $2.25 to come down.

I learned a lot about Quebec history in school, but to actually see Old Quebec (with many of the buildings having the SAME structure as they did in the 1600s...) it's just amazing. If you visit Quebec City and you don't visit Old Quebec, don't even bother going!

Wonderful buildings, very welcoming people, can't wait to visit again. Nothing to really dislike in any respect of our 4 day stay.

Roaming around old Quebec is really a treat. There are the remnants of the old French ramparts, the walls of the British Citadel, the plains of Abraham, plus many monuments. It has a lot of character and it is a real pleasure to walk around the little streets discovering the architecture of the city and it's odd little shops. There was a freezing cold wind blowing the day I visited but it didn't dampen the enjoyment of the visit one bit!

I find history interesting so seeing a site with the Old Quebec and the fort was the main reason for my visit. I find the french Canadians rude to english speaking people, but the old city is a must see. The park over looking the Lawrence is well kept and a site to behold
