Art on vacation is something we always seek. I love to purchase authentic art that represents the place visited. In France I bought a watercolour from a young woman painting on the dock in Ville Franche. This street has a lot of prints which are...More

It's a very small street, if you blink you really will miss it. But it's cute, take a quick stroll there and see some of the art for sale.

This is a very short, very cute, tiny pedestrian block between the main square and Notre Dame that is full of little artists selling paintings. The only issue is that it is very crowded and people stop suddenly to look at a piece of art...More

Great spot to go with kids. Lots of artists that have been there for many years. They really loved talking about the history of their art and how much they loved it. The street had a great European charm.

It's a lovely cobbled laneway with many interesting artworks some by local artists. Summer Weekends however it is almost impassable!

This is a very short alley just down from the Chateau Frontenac that has mostly paintings and acrylic art being sold. It was there during the day but disappeared in the evening. Charming.

Lots of little stalls with original artwork in a variety of sizes, media, and styles. There was nothing that I felt I needed to bring home, but anyone looking for a piece of artwork could do well here.

Greetings! The Quebec City train station stop is close to Old Quebec. It is a doable walk, bus or cab ride from the station if the weather is fine. Of course, that is dependent upon where in Old Quebec one is staying. We... More
