I enjoyed seeing the etchings but the other paintings were very poorly done. I was surprised at the amateurish quality on this street. Also, there was almost no variety - if you were looking for a rendition of the Frontenac, you were in luck...this was...More

Strolling down this charming old street is a lot of fun. Of course, Old Quebec is filled with streets like this, but keep this one on your list.

Small street lined with paintings & artworks. Packed with tourist during the day. A nice place to stroll in the old city.

Rue du Tresor is located in the old town. On the way going to Chateau Frontenac, we stopped by and looked at the vendors here. It was a ordinary small street where you will see some local artists having mainly paintings. In Quebec City, Basse-Ville...More

Greetings! The Quebec City train station stop is close to Old Quebec. It is a doable walk, bus or cab ride from the station if the weather is fine. Of course, that is dependent upon where in Old Quebec one is staying. We... More
