Our first visit and not our last. We stayed at the Morgan which is right in the heart of everything. Make sure you take the funicular down to even more quaint shops and restaurants. Spotless and friendly.

Great place to shop and enjoy the old buildings. Make any restaurant reservations well in advance. They have fixed it up really well since the nineties when I visited before. A must see!

The area around Quartier Petit Champlain is very nice. Lots of little streets, shops, cafes, art galleries, restaurants (and tourists). Nice to wander around people watching and window shopping (or window licking as the québécois say).

Beautiful area! Lots of quaint shops and restaurants! In October it is all decorated for Halloween and the fall and they did a wonderful job. Shops and restaurants were all very friendly and helpful.

The streets are paved with Cobble Stones and are a bit hilly so she might find manoeuvring the area a bit challenging.
