Many, many small shops. Suggest AT LEAST two days for shopping. Get a street map from hotel and go up one small.quaint street and down the next. If you can afford the VERY HIGH prices, stay downtown in this Old Port area.

Not much to do but wander for a half hour and shop. Couple of nice restaurants. Cobblestones are unique and old town America.

Family had a blast walking around Old Port, window shopping, gazing at ships on the water. Old Port has a nice array of shops, restaurants and bars. Careful walking on the cobblestone, but it's like stepping back in time.

Old Port is laid out pretty much as a grid. the streets parallel to the water are level and smooth with wide sidewalks and ramps at each corner. Many shops are accessible without a step or two up. During the summer, some... More
