“Charming”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This is the oldest part of Quebec City. Charming old stone buildings built before George Washington was President. Lots of shops and restaurants to see. This area is flatter than the Old City so it is easier to walk. It was crowded when we were there.

“Easier walking than upper city”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great part of the city to walk around after your legs are tired from climbing all the hills or
Walking lots and lots of stairs- both things Quebec City is known for. We walked around this area after taking a 90 minute tourist cruise on the St. Lawrence. There are many restaurants and shops, some even have artisans at work.

The old buildings are just amazing to see, walking on the brick roads, seeing all the colours, all the people, it is amazing.

“Lovely area”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

The Lower Town is a little less congested than the area in the Upper Town around the Chateau Frontenac or the rue St. Jean. There are many great restaurants.
