Yes, this is an attraction with packs of tourist. But it is undeniable that Old Quebec has an European charm and is very well kept. A great highlight are the ruins of the governors palace.

Walking in Old Quebec makes you feel like you're in Paris. The shops and restaurants are great. Don't forget to go to the lower level by the river and try those. We had our best meal there at Bistro Sous Le Fort.

Nice city but overcrowded. Probably spectacular for North Americans. But for a European its like any old city.

There is a neat art museum in the Plains of Abraham park which is called The Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec - I highly recommend it! It has mostly art from Quebec.
