Visiting old Quebec City is so full of character and lots to do, I would love to stay one week just to get in all the sites. This is our second trip.

We stayed in the Old Port area and we liked that it was quiet and easily accessible from the highway. There are many restaurants and art galleries in the area. There was also a farmers market nearby that was worth a look. It was a 10 minute walk to Old Quebec so its close by but it was nice to... More

We stayed here for a long weekend visit to Quebec. It is a pleasant area, quieter than the bustling old city at the top of the hill, but with dining and galleries, a museum, and good for walking. It's within walking distance of the old city up the hill, and we had no trouble with parking in October.

The Old port is worth walking through and seeking out stores and galleries that are unique. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of artist galleries which were quiet and had a wide variety of artist mediums represented.

There's nothing portish looking of the original old port. On a walking tour we learned that the old port was east out of the Place Royal down the Rue de la Place. The boats docked at the end of this street. It was on this street that the men would meet the women who came to the new world on... More

A very nice old area that looks like France and Europe. A nice area to walk and enjoy the scenery and the many restaurants and shops.

This area is on the port side (obviously) of the old town and has been transformed into a 'cultural' district with plenty of galleries to visit. Walking around is a pleasure as the architecture is really interesting and there is lots to see.

When visiting the lower Old Town area of Quebec there is so much to see that this area adjoining the St. Lawrence River and docks could easily be missed. But take the extra few blocks to walk down and be rewarded with more "quaintness" and some restaurants that are more known to locals than to tourists.

Decided to add to our Fitbit steps and stairs! Walked down the stairs and were rewarded with a panorama of streets, walkways and water views all the way down. Lots of fun places to snoop around. Interesting places to shop, eat, observe. The wall murals are fabulous. Unique and one-of-a-kind shops for gifts. There is a furnicule to ride up... More

A fun shopping and sightseeing place with lots and lots of tourists from all over the world. Lots of restaurants, too, but didn't try any. Just being part of that whole thing is fun. The best prices of tourist trinkets at the corner store at the bottom of the Funiculair Just walking or taking the Funiculair lift down there is... More
