This appeared to be where some people lived. The buildings appeared to have been there for ever. They were well cared for and area felt safe. F

Such a great place to spend a couple of hours wandering about and soaking up the atmosphere. Plenty of tourist traps but no one was forcing us to purchase. Great spot.

I love a good stroll. The lower part of old Quebec welcomes you with a great hike. Wonderful shops and restaurants await you.

When in Quebec, be sure to visit the Lower Old Quebec Town. It is truly charming - like taking a quick trip to an old european village.

We trim the Funicular to Lower Town and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip-- lots of cafes and cute ships with narrow, cobblestone streets.

Mostly souvenir shops here or other shops catering to tourists. Cobbled streets and old own feel however not a long street and not very exciting shops so wasn't to our liking. Nice place to wander but not that exciting.

Walking the narrow cobblestone streets of Lower Town is like stepping through a magic portal and arriving in Old World France. We visited in late February, in the quiet after the Winter Carnival, and the quaint shops and restaurants were dressed in white lights and...More
