We loved walking on the older streets with pavers and cobblestone. This is where you get to experience some of the history.

Québec City is a Unesco World Heritage site so hopefully the influx of kitschy touristy stores will be kept to a minimum. To really get to know the city I would highly advise one of several walking tours. One is a food tour which was worth every penny spent as we got to sample wines, foods, chocolate at seven different... More

Old Quebec is like time traveling into Paris 100 years ago. The charm, history, hospitality is unparalleled. Walk, shop, socialize, eat and drink. There is something for everyone here.

Although most streets are lined with touristy shops, the old and historical flavor remains. At a reasonable fee, the funicular can assist those who cannot walk the steep descent/ascent. Awesome views of the St. Lawrence and the Frontenac Hotel above.

You have to go! The shops were adorable! The wool store with the ladies making their products in the store was a highlight! The museum in the square is a must see. It was full of history with models of how Quebec evolved through history and tons of artifacts! It doesn't take but an hour or so, and it's a... More

For anyone who lives in a relatively young, Cdn or American city, you will be in awe of the historical beauty of Old Quebec. Plus, so many restaurants and so many Historical landmarks. Summer would be best.

Staying at the Chateau Frontenac it is a great walk down the stairs to the lower / old city (you can also take the funicular to avoid the stairs). It is filled with old European charm with great bistros, small quaint restaurants and boutique shops with cobblestone street....simply pleasant a lot of fun to stroll and have a great time.

an experience to be able to turn back time and walk the streets as they were so long ago, how the buildings were made out of stone and lumber, gave one the feeling of years gone by.

I went the week of New Year's. There were several feet of snow on the ground, and the shops were still open all week. Took the Breakneck steps down and rode the Funicular back up. Nothing here is cheap, but there are good quality, interesting items to be had, and the architecture is amazing. Make sure to see La Fresque... More
