old Quebec is a fantastic place to visit, full of charm and old-world character. We will definitely be going back in the off-season some time, to be able to better enjoy without so many fellow tourists about.

This little old town is very European in style. It is very compact, small and very walkable for everyone. Lots of cute shops and great restaurants all around. One or two days should be good enough to cover most of it if not all. We visited during Summer, but I bet it has a completely different (amazing different) feel during... More

Wonderful part of the city to wander and explore. Is very busy but so much to seem make sure to bring water and good shoes as there are a lot of elevation changes. Worth every ounce of sweat.

Old Quebec is a delightful experience. Narrow streets and historic homes makes one feel like she is in Europe. There are quaint stores and modern stores, with merchandise for every taste. Restaurants abound as do monuments, statues, and street performers. All of these together attract crowds throughout the day and well into the evening. The Old City may be small... More

This is one town you want to visit. It looks amazing, it feels great, you eat very well and it has everything you need for an conference or a get away. Quebec City is not a big city, is a beautiful european style town. Old town, or downtown, is dressed up with stone built buildings and its roads covered with... More

Old Québec is magnificent as much in its High part that in its Low part. Take the time to walk randomly in its streets to find hidden treasures. Be sure to go on the Dufferin Terrace to admire the St. Lawrence River and the Chateau Frontenac. The fortifications and the Citadel remind the military history of Quebec. The area around... More

There are many different types of restaurants, pubs and cafe's. Many places have outdoor seating or open windo seating. The roads are cobblestone and very clean. There are plenty of shops.

My daughter and I have visited Old Quebec twice, the first visit was during the Winter Carnival and we had such a wonderful visit that we decided to return in July. It is wonderful in both seasons. The fireworks for Canada were amazing and the performances by the buskers are great to take in. The city is alive with people.

Lots of entertainment at every corner in town. Singing, magic, dancers etc. Lots of restuaunts with taste food. Taking the horse and cariage to tour the city is the best way to view it.
