I felt like I was in France: French signs, French spoken and French food. We loved walking around the cobblestone streets and seeing the incredible architecture everywhere, The Château Frontenac photo op was the icing! It was actually very international with tourists from everywhere. The...More

Well worth the trip, it is very nice there. Best parking is under city hall, not too expensive and very central. Cool place, don’t miss it!

The city has made this area very welcoming by keeping Rue. Ste. Jean free of cars in the evening. Lots of restaurants and souvenir shops.

The gelato is to die for! Wonderful sandwiches and salads at excellent, affordable prices--great boutiques to shop in. Simons there is way better than it is in Ontario--much more selection and more sales!

Restaurants, bars and shoppoing ....architectural details - shuttered windows, mansard roofs, stone walls. Every shop has a hanging sign outside. Cobblestone streets. Very charming.

Once here you must walk quite a bit to see everything. We could have spent much more time here but we stopped for lunch at one of the sidewalk cafes and spent to much time enjoying our lunch.

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.
