There are many quaint little shops worth taking a look at. We enjoyed just taking a walk around the area and taking photographs. The architecture here is really beautiful and resembles that in Europe.

Its a perfect little small town feeling. Narrow streets, good shopping opportunities (bought shearling slippers). Great restaurants, many bars, good beer. Christmas decorations very lovely. A lot of detail to make it homey and festive.

Were there during winter and it is gorgeous at night. The Christmas decorations along with the snow that was falling made it very special. Recommend to anyone to visit at night and during the winter.

We were visiting just before Christmas, so the decorations on the streets and shops were just a charming addition to our visit. It snowed just enough overnight to further enhance the experience. Riding the funicular up and down to the chateau adds to the je...More

If you prefer by bus or train to Old Quebec City, I suggest you better join bus tour in Toronto. The price is affordable/reasonable, (not expensive). They include accommodation (3.5-5 star), is really a good deal,
