  • This was such a beautiful area to walk and stroll. Amazing combination of historical buildings, quaint restaurants and cute shops. Although be aware some of the shops are definitely touristy and their prices are set accordingly. Still you can find little treasures here that you may not be able to find anywhere else. Keep an eye out for the artists alley where you can browse artwork from local artists. The funicular is nearby so if you're tuckered out from a long day of walking, you can always hit a ride on it back to the upper city. Recommend giving yourself several hours destroy and enjoy and take in this area. It's perfect if you have some individuals who are interested in history, and others who are mainly interested in shopping.
  • Quiet night walking around Quartier Petite Champlain. Loving to see very beautiful historical buildings and architectures. After 9PM mostly stores closed seem to have no one live there but actually many resident lives in second or third floor. Talked to one of musician who was walking back to his home, the building nearby. I wish I could go back and enjoy the lower town during the day. Probably gives different vibe and more life.
  • When you are in Quebec City,take a little stroll down this artsy street to escape into European city vibes. A very enjoyable walk down this cobbled street while enjoying many shops, restaurants and local musicians... Do not forget to walk down the famed break neck stairways or take a ride of the funicular.
  • awesome place and must visit....ppl who love good food, drinks and shopping...this is a perfect place to spend the evening...there is a place called Mary's popcorn that has amazing popcorn....we tried cheddar cheese and salted that was awesome...other flavors too ...parking is expensive $20 after 4pm until 6am. street parking also available but no place to park and expensive.
  • Dating back to the 17th century, the Petit Champlain street is the oldest commercial artery in North America. Quartier Petit Champlain counts today more than 47 shops, restaurants and cafes. The street will make you feel like you’ve landed in a fairytale. The street is snugged along the base of Cap Diamant in Old Québec’s lower town. Close to the banks of the Saint-Lawrence River, and a short walk from the Québec City cruise port, as well as the marina in Old Port.
