During a horribly rainy and windy October afternoon, we had a couple hours to stroll thru the streets of the Old Port and enter some shops as we went along. Lots to see in addition to viewing all the historical buildings. Beautiful in the rain, so can only imagine the pleasure of being there in good weather!

Just walking around the Old Port area makes you feel like you've stepped back in time -- it's a great way to soak up the character of Old Quebec.

Walking from Rue Sault-au -Matelot, the oldest street in North America with its galleries & cafes I arrived in Rue Saint Paul also with galleries & cafes in more historic buildings close to the Old Port. A fascinating are to explore especially if interested in architecture.

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.
