This is a very busy area. Very popular by the visitors. The day we were there we realized that there were three tour ships in the harbor. It did not stop us, we enjoyed every step we took. It is very colorful and beautiful beyond...More
Haute-Ville almost demands that you walk and certainly rewards you for doing so.
What a beautiful city, and the old quarter perched on its hill has an intriguing twist around every corner.
Great shopping, good eateries, wonderful architecture and a real education in the history...More
We started at the bottom (Ie Petit Champlain) and slowly made our way up to the Upper Town.
There were many auberges and restaurants.
Walking further in, there are also churches to look at.
It is a good thing that we walked, we passed by...More
Hmmm, should have enjoyed this but it was milling with ppl. Stores & cafes really crowded even in late Sept. Wouldn't have bought anything here but needed gifts for friend who helped us plan our trip. I far preferred the lower city. Easier to get...More
Fascinating area with historic buildings, great views, and lots of charming restaurants and shops. We really enjoy exploring the history and architecture. We toured Upper Town following the AAA Walking Tour guide, which was very thorough. Maps and guides can also be obtained at the...More
Yes, it's a tourist trap. But it's like an interactive museum of history. There is a real sense of the life in the 18th and 19th centuries. Makes you glad you are here now. Strongly recommend a guided walking tour to get a sense of...More

Old Town is the entire historic district, both Haute (upper) town and lower. Lower is along the river, and is the original, older part of town nice restaurants, hotels, the Musee de la Civilisation, etc. You can walk up steep streets or steps to the Upper town (larger, more restaurants/hotels, Chateau de Frontenac, Plains of Abraham, connected to the rest of Quebec) or take the Funicular. They're just different parts of the same smallish area, like midtown Manhattan and the theatre district.

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.
