Lots of houses from way past, many squeezed in by relatively newer box-like structures. Still charming, with hanging baskets of pink flowers. Great place to walk.

We had lunch here a couple days during our stay in Quebec, wandered the streets a bit. Nice shops with much more selection than lower city. Easy to walk the area.

What more can I say? We visited the upper town 3 of our 4 days in the old city. Endless things to do. Try the Vieux old quebec walking tour to begin your orientation. Then return to explore at your leisurely pace. There's shopping along...More

We took the free walking tour from the Plains of Abraham which was very informative and full of interesting historical details about the upper and lower parts of historic Quebec. Then spent the next two days exploring on our own. Couldn't get enough. Obviously, must...More

This is the area where most of the hotels, bigger shops, and restaurants are. Easy to connect to the Lower town by steps or fenicular. Lots of streets to wander around, and bars to stop in for a short, err, rest. The big Chateau hotel...More

So much to see and do in Quebec! Shops and restaurants abound! We loved the upper part of town as much as the lower part! BTW there is a lift to take you between upper and lower if you aren't good on the walking part!

Upper Town is where you will find the recognizable sights of Old Quebec such as Chateau Frontenac, Dufferin Terrace, ect. There are small squares and narrow alleys to traverse. Many of the best restaurants are located in Upper Town and as such they can get...More

#1: I'm no longer there, and I really enjoyed this little area. #2: On almost every street you need to cross, there is a long wait, and then you have 20 seconds to cross. Other that that, beautiful area with a rich history!

We did the hop on bus and found plenty to see when we hopped off for a walk. I love the French architecture and sometimes some British buildings inter spursed. Plenty of restaurants and speciality shops to either window shop or buy from. Loved the...More

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.
