    A lot to take in!
    We spent 4 days in Quebec and enjoyed exploring the Upper Town. Walking along the streets and just taking in the history. We did a guided tour which gave us an insight on the history we would not have gotten alone. Some great shops and amazing restaurants

    Love it here!
    I spent a couple of days here with hubby and our 2 young adult daughters. It was a fabulous time in the most charming town I've ever seen. Very walkable, lots of shops and restaurants, and everyone was so friendly! Everyone was quick to switch to English as soon as they heard our sad attempts at speaking French. So fun!

    Gorgeous Quebec!
    Quebec is gorgeous! It is such a pleasure to wander the streets of old Quebec by day or night. From the Upper Town you can get great views along the river. The Chateau Frontenac is iconic and walking around it and along the Terrasse Dufferin is a delight.

    Stop by this cool park with nice views overlooking old Town, nice views of the old buildings around. Tons of shops & eateries Stop into the old castle and nearby is the Citadel. Every aspect of old and new city is easily walkable from cruise port.

    A Town to Explore
    We wandered around here each day, always finding something new. Every street seems to lead to somewhere or something interesting, including restaurants and bars galore, each offering a different experience. There are a few tourist shops, no high rise and a massive incongruous (to us) Disney-style hotel, which looks ridiculously out of place and really jars with everything around it. The cruise passengers loved it of course, saves them going to see a real château in the Loire.

    Beautiful part of Quebec
    Upper Town or Haute-Ville is a beautiful part of Quebec. There are plenty of restaurants and bars as well as tourist and other shops to keep visitors happy. It is a very clean city and one can never get tired of walking around and visiting various sites.

    As gorgeous as the Lower Town
    The upper town is equally beautiful and not as 'tight' as the lower town with it's small houses and cobbled streets you can reach via the funicular. Here everything is bigger and the traffic is more intense. This is where you find all the museums of interests, free to access Notre Dame cathedral etc Equally expensive as Lower town, yet there are good deals to be found.

    France at your doorstep
    I love Quebec City! Short flight to experience French cuisine, cobble stone stone streets in one of the oldest cities in North America. And, these French speakers are actually Friendly! Let me not forget to mention the great exchange rate for our dollar.

Had a lovely Saturday sightseeing in Upper Town and what an enjoyable time we had! Shops and restaurants line the streets; we picked up a few souvenirs and enjoyed lunch at a bakery.
