My wife daughter and I just got back from a winter vacation in Old Quebec. I can't stress enough how much we liked it. We walked, and walked and walked all over the city. Lots of little alleyways, shops and restaurants to explore. The people were also very friendly. Almost everyone spoke english, and if they didn't, they were quick to point us to someone who did. Can't wait to get back again soon!

We visited in winter and loved the place, can't wait to check it out in summer. Beautiful buildings, great restaurants, love the narrow streets. Easy walking and the electric bus serves a lot of the areas too.

I have no dislikes of Old Quebec. We go every year for snow. It never disappoints. There is dog mushing, ice skating and snow mobiles.

Took the Funiculaire ($2.25pp) from the Chateau Frontenac to arrive in the old time streets below. Gorgeous colorful Christmas decorations and lights amid the winter white snow made it a spectacular time of year to visit. Interesting architecture and buildings with narrow lane ways, together with the town square and the sparkly crisp snow can make you think you have travelled back in time or are on a movie set. Can easily spend 3+ hours wandering in and about, having a coffee, taking holiday snaps and selfies, watching the sea ice travel down the river, admiring the creative works of the local artists and even looking at the local fur shop. Wouldn't miss it if you are visiting QC.

This is definitely the most beautiful part of Quebec City :) Being there was like a step into Europe. It was so much fun to walk around and look at all of the shops. There is also a great variety of restaurants! Be sure to stop and buy some macaroons, they're delicious! And find somewhere to buy Poutine. :)
