The best trompe l'oeil:mural I've ever seen

This is a definite must see in Quebec City. I've never witnessed such a beautiful mural and best of all, it's located near lots of shops and restaurants.

Quartier Petit Champlain is very close to our cruise ship dock # 22. It was a very easy walk, even though there were cobblestone streets. We were most impressed with the fresco 3 dimensional painting on one wall of a building. It was difficult to get a good photo because there was a fence in the way. Nice shops &... More

This is quintessential Québec in one beautiful little street. Boutiques worth stepping into (a favorite of mine is Pot-en-ciel, a small kitchen supply store). Restaurants serving typical Québec comfort food, a tiny park often with someone playing live music, all close to other areas worth visiting (Place Royale, Dalhousie street with the civilization museum, and the upper city with the...

The shopping is wonderful, with a little something for everyone. There is a good selection of restaurants to choose from, from inexpensive to pricey. I especially love walking down here during the Winter Carnival, when the atmosphere is so festive and lovely, with ice sculptures and lights everywhere. It's like stepping into a Dickens story.

This was one of our favorite areas while staying in Old Quebec. Charming shops and restaurants. Quebec at Christmas is a must do!

Beautiful area to take a stroll, even in winter. Nice little restaurants and stores. You could walk to the Ferry from here.

This magical place that looks like 'Whoville' in the Grinch movie. Cute stores lit up. Very romantic. I really wanted to come here during Christmas time and was so happy I was able to achieve that. Beautifully lit. Lots of stores and restaurants. I recommend the restaurant Cochon Dingue for dinner and Bistro Sous Le Fort for dinner. Yum!

A breath-taking street that pretty much epitomizes what one would expect of an 'old world' Christmas. Thoroughly enjoyed! Will definitely return again.

This street was mobbed every time we came across it. Typical tourist street with the same style of shops you'd find in so many cities but a few pleasant restaurants. Difficult to stand back and admire the buildings so look down on it from above.

It has been named the most beautiful street in North America for a reason, and the best time to see why is around Christmastime. In the day time it's nice, but at night, in December, it looks like something right out of a movie. Just walk up and down the street, (it's not long), and go in the shops and... More
