This is a featureless Street that runs past the Musée de la Civilisation (worth a visit). There is an interesting fountain at the port end, but little else to commend it. The adjacent Sault au Matelot is a much better route, with its restaurants, cafes...More

A nice walk on even an overcast day. Very charming architecture but not a lot to do or see other than the few bistros and restaurants it does lead uphill to some very nice shopping areas. Currently some construction going on.

With all the different areas you can visit while in Quebec City you can skip this one. Unless you are on this street for something specific like the Musee de la civilisation. Not really anything interesting to see.

This street is not that great after cote de Montague. The other parts of the lower town are much better. I did not find it that interesting or scenic.

As you walk the cobblestone streets, passing by shops, and old European style bars and restaurants, you can picture yourself back in time. Take in all the side streets as well, to really immerse yourself into the area.

Cobble stone streets. Rue St Pierrie was once at the river's edge in the 1600's and on Rue St Antoine , there are clear markings of the shoreline as it receded into the 1800's.

We stayed in a condo on this street which is a great location for a week in the city. Located in the lower town with antique places, Petite Champlain(nick nack shops and restaurants), Port Market, boat tours, and the funicular to Upper Town and all...More
