Lots of unique shops, some very pricey. Many outdoor restaurants. Streets made of cobblestone best to wear good supported shoe.

You must visit the Petit Champlian if you visit Quebec. It is charming and cute, buit sooo crowded with tourists. Walk a little further toward the old port where the crowds thin out but the charm remains. Avoid when cruise ships are docked!

This is a fun photogenic street. A mixture of upscale and downscale shops. People watching is a good pastime here too. Very clean and always felt safe.

We only spent about an hour. Very quaint shops and buildings with narrow streets and pedestrian areas. It was very crowded, but we enjoyed wallking along the street and browsing in the shops.

I think Quartier Petit Champlain might be slightly overrated. There were many stores, but the crowd was too much?

I was there in high tourist season, so it was almost wall-to-wall with tourists. But there are some nice, interesting shops and places to eat, so it is still worth a visit, especially thanks to the pedestrian only streets.

We walked up slowly to the top and back. There are steps to climb or walk up. Yes, it is close to the port and walking distance to restaurants and stores.

We were there November 10-12 and they were putting up the decorations and setting up the Christmas village shops on the square. At Thanksgiving they will be in full swing for Christmas
