"Lower Town" Place Royale & Le Petit Champlain Tip by mattreider

  Place Royal
by mattreider

Let's be honest, most of the beauty of a vacation to Quebec City is walking along the old town, looking at the close buildings, browsing in the boutiques, and eating. No trip would be complete without spending some time at the pedestrian-friendly lower town, complete with antiques districts and shops.

Reconstructed in the 70s to celebrate the French Heritage of the region, access to lower town is accomplished through stairs from the Dufferin Terrace (the "breakneck" stairs), the Funicular, or by wandering down some steep roads.

Address: Between the cliffs and the water
