Very well maintained the old town deserves a visit. Cobled streets within easy reach from the walkway beneath Château Frontenac, either walking or using the cable car. Nice shops, art galleries and small restaurants. From there you can also take the boat tour around the...More

We walked around for hours and still did not see everything. The narrow streets for pedestrians only was filled with shops, restaurants and historical buildings. A lot of history to read about which are on a lot of the buildings.

I love the lower town. On both of my visits to QC, I have stayed there and truly enjoy the whole vibe of the area. More refined than the walled city. less touristy, and more picturesque. It lends itself to leisurely strolls, shopping and eating....More

Pleasant area. We opted to ride the furnicular to get up and down the cliff. Shops were more than the traditional tourist shops. Close enough to the cruise ship docks where you have to put up with the cruise crowd. Ate at La Supine which...More

Lower Town is in the sector of the oldest settlements of Quebec City. It includes plenty of restaurants, cafés, shops and many art galleries. This is where most luxury cruise boats arrive. You'll find there the Musée de la Civilisation, a superb museum. Simply walking...More

Just neat like the upper city. If you like history you will enjoy this part of the city as well. Seeing such old buildings and the history in North America is great.

Don't let the rain (or snow) deter you. The city, with its narrow streets and cobblestones, and hilliness becomes a reflective canvas, with sparkles of light from many sources. It can be quite magical to be out and about.
