    Small area of Quebec highly crowded and lively! If you are visiting, feel free to stop: shops, souvenirs, colorful houses, small area of rest in the shade... everything is there to spend long minutes! Complete with stairs that will lead you directly to the foot of the Frontenac Castle!

    Not too crowded; shops for all tastes. To get there take your courage to walk down there.

    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.

    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.

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.
