With all the different areas you can visit while in Quebec City you can skip this one. Unless you are on this street for something specific like the Musee de la civilisation. Not really anything interesting to see.

Not sure why this street warrants a separate listing in ta. It's part of the lower old town. It has a few shops and restaurants and most noticeably one of the entrances to the civilization museum. But it's probably one of the more mundane streets. Not really a destination in and of itself.

This is a nicer mix of antique shops, local cafes, galleries and a few local shops tucked into a very old world neighborhood of cobblestone streets. It makes a good alternate stroll down from the upper town

This street is not that great after cote de Montague. The other parts of the lower town are much better. I did not find it that interesting or scenic.

Cobble stone streets. Rue St Pierrie was once at the river's edge in the 1600's and on Rue St Antoine , there are clear markings of the shoreline as it receded into the 1800's.

We stayed in a condo on this street which is a great location for a week in the city. Located in the lower town with antique places, Petite Champlain(nick nack shops and restaurants), Port Market, boat tours, and the funicular to Upper Town and all the shopping/restaurants and attractions(Citadel,Hotel Fontenac,Plain Of Abraham, Parliament,etc). And this part of town is fairly... More
