While on a drive across the country we drove into Old Quebec. Beautiful to see, so European. We were not physically able to walk very much due to some medical issues at the time of our visit so we were pleasantly surprised by how much you could see by driving your car. Some spots you couldn't get to because of types of events in the area but we were impressed. Would love to return and spend a couple of nights in one of the hotels in Old Quebec.

Definitely worth a visit. Old, quaint, European, and beautiful. Try and get a hotel close to the old city and be prepared to walk to enjoy the scenery. Try and learn a few French phrases, but they know most tourists only speak Anglais.

Luckily Quebec has preserved its old city including its walls - lovely ambience that has not been lost despite the abundance of tourist shops in the old city.
Luckily we were here in winter with NO cruise ships in town so crowds were minimal. We heard that even the locals dread the cruise ship season when the crowds can be unbearable

We were staying in Montreal and took a bus tour of Old Quebec! This place is even better than Old Montreal and that is saying something as Old Montreal was amazing! The architecture was amazing, the shops were incredible, it was just like being in Europe.

Absolutely one of the best places in Eastern North America to get away for 3 or 4 days, there is so much to see and do in the Old Quebec city district that you certainly will not get bored. While there are some hills to climb if you take your time and stop and shop in the quant little shops scattered throughout the old town you don't notice it. My wife and I who are both over 75 and typically recorded on our fitness watches over 15,000 steps a day and climbed equivalent to between 40 to 60 flights of stairs. The best part of Old Quebec is the nice little French restaurants, three of our favourite are; ECHAUDE for dinner, Le lapin Saute for lunch, and Au Petit Coin Breton Creperic for breakfast. We try to get to Quebec city at least once every year or two and always visit these establishments at least once every time we are there.

We visited Quebec city , staying at the Chateau Bellevue in the heart of old Quebec. So many lovely shops and restaurants to choose from. A bit on the pricey side though. Lots of attractions within walking distance.

We spent a week exploring the old part of the city with daily walks, shopping, dinners, lunch, and drinks with our teenagers and found plenty to do (despite the weather). There are always people on the street after 8 am into the evening and although not a bustling party town, you feel like the city is alive. You can ice skate right out side the gates but all other winter activities are harder to come by when it is is colder than normal. We are glad we came!

Old Quebec is a wonderful place to visit. We had a great time there and went to a pub / restaurant to eat. We were there for the evening and parked the car as everyone else was doing. There is no parking there to speak of so everyone parks in the side of the streets. It was about 2.5 hours and we came back to the car and found a $54 ticket. We were very upset and disappointed. It ruined our trip. After paying the ticket, I sent an email to the city and basically, they don't care. We won't be back. Too bad as we enjoyed the old city and the people.

Because we had such a lovely time 5 years ago, we decided to return for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration, and again we enjoyed this place so much. The buildings, the lights, the snow — just charming. There are so many excellent places to eat, and a Christmas market opens at the end of November, so we were able to stop there. There are a variety of shops as well, some touristy but fun, and some artsy.
