This is right off of Lower Town, and this is the place where all of the tour boats dock. If you're feeling a bit claustrophobic from wandering the narrow streets of Lower Town, the Old Port is just a few moments away, and it has some great views of the St. Lawrence River and Levis.

We walked around this area and found lots of antique shops as well as some art stores and other shops. Great little area to do some window shopping and stop for a bite to eat in a place that is a little less busy as the areas closer to the main attractions of old Quebec City. Closer to the water...

We had a great time strolling through the various booths of the Old Port Market. Food, wine, art, clothes, nick-knacks---you name it. We were there in December, it is was a good location to get in a decent walk, but it was then fun to get out of the chill and try various apple wines. While in that part of... More

During a horribly rainy and windy October afternoon, we had a couple hours to stroll thru the streets of the Old Port and enter some shops as we went along. Lots to see in addition to viewing all the historical buildings. Beautiful in the rain, so can only imagine the pleasure of being there in good weather!

Just walking around the Old Port area makes you feel like you've stepped back in time -- it's a great way to soak up the character of Old Quebec.

Walking from Rue Sault-au -Matelot, the oldest street in North America with its galleries & cafes I arrived in Rue Saint Paul also with galleries & cafes in more historic buildings close to the Old Port. A fascinating are to explore especially if interested in architecture.

Visiting old Quebec City is so full of character and lots to do, I would love to stay one week just to get in all the sites. This is our second trip.

We stayed in the Old Port area and we liked that it was quiet and easily accessible from the highway. There are many restaurants and art galleries in the area. There was also a farmers market nearby that was worth a look. It was a 10 minute walk to Old Quebec so its close by but it was nice to... More

We stayed here for a long weekend visit to Quebec. It is a pleasant area, quieter than the bustling old city at the top of the hill, but with dining and galleries, a museum, and good for walking. It's within walking distance of the old city up the hill, and we had no trouble with parking in October.
