4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Explore the historic riverfront complex of Old Port (Vieux-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 (Vieux-Port) on your trip to Quebec City, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • it is so wonderful to just walk stop have a cafe and watch the people and the wonderful building.....the streets are so clean and so beautiful...... 
  • When you go down to Petit Champlain go left and there are several blocks more to see of interesting buildings, parks and galleries. A nice weather day is best. 
  • Always nice to browse the shops in this area. There are some rather junky stores and some really nice ones. I particularly recommend Galerie Lacroix on Sault-au-Matelot[off St>Paul].
