A step back in time when you visit this beautiful area of the city. There is truly nowhere else in North America that feels as European as this area.

This historic district of Old Quebec has amazing architecture and it's no wonder that it is designated as an Unesco World Heritage Site. It was most pleasant to walk around the whole old town.

The Old Town of Quebec is delightful. Protected by UNESCO, Quebec City still preserves its charm. The best way to see the city is by foot. Spend some time exploring small streets of the Old Town! This is one of the oldest cities in North America.

This historic city is incredible when you walk the streets it truly surreal, every turn of every corner is a European vacation in North America, you can't miss the awesome music fest in the Summer you could see famous artists Paul McCartney, and others

"Historic" doesn't do it justice - the streets of Old Quebec City simply feel frozen in time. The Old City has a uniquely European vibe, with quaint streets and beautiful architecture. There are plenty of interesting shops and restaurants to discover if you're willing to wander the area!

Charming, quaint, and simply European are the words I'd choose to describe this area of Quebec. I felt transported back to France at least for a little while.

absolutely adore the feel of strolling along a European street and Old Quebec's got it. Inside the fortified walls, Old Quebec has been declared as a national heritage treasure by UNESCO. The effort of preservation is incredible, from the moment of entering Old Quebec, it felt as if time has transformed back into the 15th century. The home of streets of artisan displays, novelty, one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants, the famous Chateau Frontenac hotel, the impressive Fresque des Québécois, the landscaping and architecture of Old Quebec reflects its cultural and heritage. An incredible place to just wander around, witness history and do some treasure hunting in the local shops.

It's like Europe in North America. I enjoyed by brief visit more than any city in the world except maybe Oslo. It's beautiful, old, walkable, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Quebec is a good city to tour. saw morency falls nearby and the zoo along with St Anne de beaupre chapel also have been there during winter carnival which is alot of fun. You have to visit in summer and winter to get the feel of this place.
