    Historic and Full of Tourists
    This is in the heart of the lower town, the historic district , and the tourist area. When cruise ships are in town, it is hard to find your way down the street. Some grand historic buildings here. You do need to go, but beware that you are in ground zero for tourists.

    A beautiful street
    A definite street everyone must visit. There’s a reason it is one of the most beautiful streets in North America. If you can’t find it here, then, you’re not looking. Bistro‘s, Restaurants, Novelty stores, ice cream, and anything else you could desire.

    Walk through one of the first commercial streets of the New World
    For a romantic stroll through one of the most beautiful cities in the world, take a walk through Quartier Petit Champlain. Tons of shops, cafes, restaurants, sites, frescoes, literally everything under the sun, you can find in this incredibly quaint little corridor in Basse-Ville. Either take the Escalier Casse-Cou or the Funiculaire down and you can literally spend hours down here. No matter how many times I've been to Quebec, this is still by far one of my favorite, if not my favorite part of the city to walk through.

    Beautiful shopping area in Old Quebec City
    This is a really beautiful part of Quebec City with some interesting and unique shops. Take a wander down here and admire the architecture, eat or just window shop. Some great photo opportunities. You can take the funicular back up to the other part of town.

    A shouldn’t miss visit when in Quebec City!
    This section of the “bas ville “ can sometimes be sensory overload. All stores an restaurants had seasonal decorations inside and out. Quite a few stores catered to women’s fashion. A must visit. This section of town has a European feel to it

    It's a sensory overload walking through here. Several tourist souvenir shops seem to repeat, but there are many more choices. Plus, wonderful chocolate and ice cream stores for your senses of smell and taste. You may need to visit twice to find all the streets. Enjoy the architecture and the restaurants as well.

    Wonderful Area to Explore
    We spent two days exploring the area's shops and restaurants. Great variety of places to visit. Lighting at night was wonderful and the the area felt very safe. We were there right before Halloween, so everything was decorated. Plenty of places to take photos!

    Picturesque Street
    One of the most photogenic streets in Québec City was filled with shops and restaurants. In April there wasn’t much crowds so it was pleasant to stroll through. There were a couple of unique addresses ending in 1/2 instead of a whole number. We could not figure out how one door qualified as a 1/2 versus others.

Such a beautiful area to visit! The funicular lines were long so we walked up to the castle from here.
The small shops were excellent- try the fudge shop 🥰

A mix of souvenir shops and really innovative one-off clothes and craft boutiques. A narrow main street so very crowded.

This neighborhood is full of history, but has become just a row of souvenir shops and tourist restaurants. Some people might appreciate it because of the history and the fact that it reminds them of some European villages, but others will probably just get a Disney like feel…
