All reviews cobblestone streets beautiful city european city european feel old world charm street performers walking shoes shops and restaurants every corner chateau frontenac on foot walk around north america lots of history art galleries great place to visit walking tour
The Old City is beautiful and clean, but you can see everything it has to offer over two days, or even a well packed day. It is a great stop on a cruise, but doesn't offer enough for a multi day stay. As can be...More
We really enjoyed the old part of the city and I guess that is why all the tourists visit here. The shops at the bottom of the funiticulaire were are favorite places. All three merchants we visited spoke English, thank you.
The Old Quebec area between the St. Lawrence and the cliff face is full of quaint shops, art galleries and lovely restaurants and bars. It is very easy walk from end to end and has both stairs and a funicular up to the Dufferin Terrace
We can totally see why the area received a UNESCO designation. It is charming, historic, and totally photogenic. So many fun shops, art galleries, restaurants, and important historic sights. We are spending days here because there is so much to see. Don’t miss it.
Been to Quebec City many times and every visit is more wonderful than the last one. So many hidden treasures and historical facts to learn and appreciate. Amazing food, great shopping. It is a little bit of Europe in Canada.
Your best bet is on the Grand Allée about three blocks away from the Louis XIV gate where there is a full block with restaurants on both side of the street including one whose name translates “to the bone”.

Hi I simply love Québec City and visit as often as I can. Yes the hop on hop off bus is a great idea as it will show you all the city has to offer. You can then visit what you most want to see. I would suggest taking a tour and not get off the first time around and then get off the bus when you pass by again. Walking along St Jean you will see lots of restaurants and shops. Must see in the old city is The Citadelle, Chateau Frontenac, the boardwalk, you can take the funicular to the lower part to the rue du Petit Champlain, the plains of Abraham (very cool restaurant near there) the Marché near the Aubege du Trésor and lastly the Auberge du Trésor alley way. There is much much more to see but I think those are the best. As for restaurants, on one of my trips I brought some friends and did not have much time. They really wanted to see the whole city so we had lunch at a restaurant called “le Ciel”. The name says it all. The food is wonderful, nicely priced but most of all you get to see the whole of Quebec City while you have lunch, supper or Brunch. Another one of my favourite restaurants is Creperie du Breton. Small place, you may have to wait a bit but it really is so worth it. You can have your crepe filled with whatever you like, even chocolate and whipped cream (smile) Have fun :)
