Old Port, Quebec City

(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Explore the historic riverfront complex of Old Port, the oldest port in Canada. The port was once one of the five biggest in the world, with more than 1600 ships a year passing through during its 19th century heyday. Now providing a stop-off point for large cruise ships, the port has been transformed into a lively commercial area with its Victorian architecture housing quaint shops and eateries along cobblestone streets. Stop off for a bite to eat at one of the rustic restaurants as you tour the many small cultural attractions, such as local museums, monuments, and churches dotted around the area. Use our Quebec City trip builder to visit Old Port on your trip to Quebec City, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Very beautiful areas of Quebec, many tourists from different countries is there during the cruise, and during the summer periods very nice and full of shops specialized

  • For a walk or a lunch on a terrace... really the place. Near the old port, mdu market public and Palace Station

  • For a walk by the River, in the face of the old man-Qc and overlooking the upper town. With a new place of cannotiers to receive cruise passengers in 2017. Shows open air and access to the Bassin Louise. A worthy of the name old port, nothing to do with the Montreal that bears the name without that there is trace of history.
