Owner description: This once bustling port now serves as a nostalgic reminder of Lower Town's history.

We really enjoyed taking a quiet walk along the harbour and then walking through the Market before making the hike bike up to Upper Town. We grabbed some great food in the market and sat outside on the wharf to eat. Lovely!

Haven't been for a few years, still beautiful as I remembered it! Lots to see in the shops, and great food! Missed the beaver tails (cheese ones)on the boardwalk outside Chateau Frontenac though!

The timing of our visit to the Old Port couldn't have been worse. It felt like Disneyland. We decided that if we ever go back, it will either be early in the morning or in the evening. Maybe then it won't be quite as touristic.

Here is where you can get an eyeful of beautifully arranged food, from fresh vegetables and fruits, to meats, cheeses, breads, bakery items...you name it! The vendors take such pride in the presentation of their wares, so bring your camera! We arrived at the peak of raspberry and strawberry season, so many stands had these available. Besides the food, there was also wine, vinegars, olive oils, clothing, and so much more. Allow yourself some time to stroll through, and no worries, English was freely spoken by the vendors, as we found everywhere in the city. I would suggest, however, arriving with Canadian currency for your purchases.

Here's another of the many "lower Quebecs" or "old Quebecs. We intentionally chose to stay close to this area of Quebec since it has water views, close to the water and way less touristy. Outdoor flower stands and fresh market produce reminded us of our trips to the countryside in France.
