Visit Upper Old Town Quebec

Upper Old Town Quebec is much larger than the Lower Old Town Quebec and not quite as charming BUT there is so much more to see in Upper Old Town Quebec. Must do them both.

More of a catch-all than a specific location, most of what tourists are looking for will be in the upper town or the lower town, but there is enough ambience to make this a beautiful place to walk around, even if there is no particular attraction in mind. There are going to be some very touristy places, but for those... More

Haute-Ville is still a charming quarter of restaurant patios, musicians and artists. The sense of life four hundred years ago is still enchanting. Some of the places I remember from the sixties are not there, and some of the restaurants seem a little less unique. Visit anyway.

Upper Town has many small shops and inviting restaurants near the iconic hotel - some with free WiFi if you need it. There is lots of variety in tourist items such as shirts, trinkets, postcards, and Canadian food treats. Take several hours to wander the area.

Quebec是加拿大的法語區,但不是每一個地方都有歐洲的氣氛. 如你要我說那個地方最具歐洲氣息,我本人覺得就是Upper Town (Haute-Ville) & Lower Town (Basse-Ville). Upper Town (Haute-Ville)這個街道,洋溢著歐陸風情,感覺置身在歐洲的聖誕街中.

Fun to walk around and poke around in all the shops. Lots of history. Wear comfortable shoes - lots of photo ops.

First of all, you have the Chateau Frontenac, which his an attraction all in itself. But then there's the place, the fountain, the churches, the view from the promenade, and so much more! Take your time in this place!

The Upper Town packs quite a punch for being rather a small area. It's easy to walk around, plenty of restaurants and charm!

Most tourists end up at the Upper Town. After all, the most renowned edifices are located here. La Citadelle cannot be missed as it is located at the highest point of this town. It’s quite majestic with all its canons. While walking, we encountered the old Fortifications. We were able to walk on them and see some outstanding views! Eventually,... More
