Fascinating place to see, experience and dine. You will find a range of restaurant types and price range. The old trading post buildings are still in place and now converted to modern businesses.

The Old City is beautiful and clean, but you can see everything it has to offer over two days, or even a well packed day. It is a great stop on a cruise, but doesn't offer enough for a multi day stay. As can be...More

Make sure you take the time to wonder in and out of the alleyways in Old Quebec. Most colorful and the buildings look so European it is no wonder many films are recorded here. The scenery is stunning.

Spent two days on Quebec City. Weather was not so good but we still did a lot of walking. Buildings are beautiful, easy to get around but it is very hilly. Trees were showing fall colors.

Loved this part of Quebec with its old homes from the French and English era. The old streets to wander around, the city wall to climb and the food. What more could you want

We really enjoyed the old part of the city and I guess that is why all the tourists visit here. The shops at the bottom of the funiticulaire were are favorite places. All three merchants we visited spoke English, thank you.

The Old Quebec area between the St. Lawrence and the cliff face is full of quaint shops, art galleries and lovely restaurants and bars. It is very easy walk from end to end and has both stairs and a funicular up to the Dufferin Terrace

We can totally see why the area received a UNESCO designation. It is charming, historic, and totally photogenic. So many fun shops, art galleries, restaurants, and important historic sights. We are spending days here because there is so much to see. Don’t miss it.

Been to Quebec City many times and every visit is more wonderful than the last one. So many hidden treasures and historical facts to learn and appreciate. Amazing food, great shopping. It is a little bit of Europe in Canada.

Your best bet is on the Grand Allée about three blocks away from the Louis XIV gate where there is a full block with restaurants on both side of the street including one whose name translates “to the bone”.
