Felt very touristy. Lots of souvenir shops. Bad restaurants that cater to tourists. Lovey stone buildings. Sort of like NYCs South Street Seaport. But bigger. Worth going to but don’t expect your life to be changed.

It's a typical tourist area w/ many restaurants, ice cream shops, streets that need repair, homeless people and disappointingly few shops. It's a must see, but not often.

There are many nice restaurants, views and nice walks you can take. The old port is also amazing, especially in the summer.

After the glories of Quebec City, thIs is a pale version. Few alleyways were worth a wander down. There are, however, lots of funky cafes; craft and art galleries are worth a look at

It was a lovely place! Street artists were awesome! Not much but restaurants and souvenir shops though. It was a beautiful day to walk around, not sure how great it would have been if it was raining.

Lots of restaurants and bars but little atmosphere of the old city. The old port is a funfair with few remnants of a port.
