deal of old world charm and is considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in Quebec City. Quartier Petit Champlain offers unique shops and bistros, art galleries, high end stores, and fine dining. The narrow streets and stone buildings give Quartier Petit Champlain a romantic European atmosphere. A must see for visitors is the mural painted on the side of the house located at 102 rue du Petit-Champlain and the breakneck stairs which were built in 1635.

How about a trip back in time at Place Royale, where Samuel de Champlain founded his first “abitation” in 1608? And why not do some window shopping in the nearby Quartier Petit Champlain while you're at it!

As you wander past period buildings along cobblestone streets, enjoy the area's boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. There's magic in the air, particularly over the Christmas holiday season.

The oldest neighborhood in North America is also home to Musée de la civilisation, a bridge between the past and future with its modern design and fascinating exhibitions.

Attractive well-manicured section of the Vieux-Quebec. One of the must-see parts of the city and home to the funicular if you don't want to walk up the hill to go between the upper and lower parts of the old city.

This quarter is a highlight of any visit to Quebec City! The buildings are historic and picturesque, with plenty of photo spots hidden in these streets. Even on a frigid winter day, I couldn't stop wandering through this area.

By far, my favorite and most memorable part of the trip to Quebec City. Quartier Petit Champlain is an area of Old Quebec, namely, the oldest commercial district in North America. Today, all of its historical facades are preserved with brand new stores and restaurants on the sides of the street. Walking down the narrow street of la rue du petit-champlain is a treat in itself, the feel of old European city is brought back in its full force, much to see, much to explore, and much to appreciate. The unique artisan shops scattered around the side of the street are worth every bit to explore. Discover the Fresque du Petit Champlain on the way, a part of an effort to place a series of wall arts reflective of the history of old quebec. Incredible.
