  • Go take the time to see this magnificent Street which, regardless of the seasons, always unforgettable! A nice shop, or a meal, everything is great.

  • One of the most romantic places in Canada. Lots of great options for shopping and dining, all with the spectacular & magical vibe of this quartier. Owners of most shops are very friendly and willing to talk, which only increases the experience at this place. Definitely the highlight of Quebec City, a must for residents and tourists.
  • Wonderful place to shop and eat in the old city. Try Ibiza hat store. Spaghetti &tiniest great place for lunch.
  • Beautiful place to take a stroll, have some good food and wine and not to forget the gelato. Cobbled stone streets and colourful buildings.
  • Picturesque. A beautiful place to walk or enjoy dining at one of many bistros and restaurants. Not cheap. Some very expensive, in many cases unreasonably so. But many places were priced well for being in a high tourist location. No disappointments.
  • Love this quaint little place. It's a great shopping area with lots of unique items and boutique shops.

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
