Had a lovely Saturday sightseeing in Upper Town and what an enjoyable time we had! Shops and restaurants line the streets; we picked up a few souvenirs and enjoyed lunch at a bakery.

We stayed in a section of the city which was on the border of the Upper Town and the Old City and it was perfect. We alternated days going into and exploring both. The Upper Town feels like a trip to France with street after...More

Feels like a side street in Paris. Lots of interesting shops along the route, some relating directly to Canada's First People and should not be missed; unique shopping experiences in a city with a lot of charm

We had a great time staying here, strolling, eating, relaxing and shopping here this winter. I would say it might be busier in the summer(?) but at least for us this was a pretty great place to spend a couple days.

Nice area to walk around and shop. We spent quite a bit of time going into all of the shops and walking around this area. It is a must see!

We walked and shopped and ducked into a few places to snack. We found the shops to be somewhat different and prices pretty good for American $. We only spent about 2-3 hours but enjoyed our time looking and shopping!

We walked around the upper and lower town but took a city tour with a tour company to see where we wanted to spend more time. You can call in the visitor centre and get plenty of information that will help you.
