Worth walking this during the day (quiet, very few people, some good photo opportunities) and again at night (packed, lots of bars and restaurants, parades etc). It is unashamedly touristy, but definitely worth visiting. Adjacent is the Ronda Bridge and numerous streets boasting interesting architecture...More

If you wanna try one or many Ecuadorian dishes this is one of many places you can choose, most of the restaurants along this street have life music and nice bands with all kind of music.. we sure had a good time!!

This street was specifically designed as a tourist area several years ago. There are some nice restaurants and some trendy boutique shops, but it is nothing special and not worth going out of your way to see. Best thing about it was no traffic.

Perfect to go at night! Alwsays some events, or food or just a typical drink. Try the Emapandas which are giant or try the Canelazo. Perfect for every ocassion. Romantic or just to enjoy. Go a bit early so you can see the museums.

Interesting shops and restaurants in a small, safe area for walking. Try the local flavors of ice cream at Dulce Placer or the original T-shirt designs at Vulgomaestre.

You can watch demonstrations on chocolate making, shop for hand knit sweaters, drink coffee or fab hot chocolate or just browse. Lots of restaurants open in evening. Not crowded in morning but gradually the crowd grows. Some evenings wall to wall

We enjoyed the “Redlight district” and all of its shops and character. It is an easy walk and felt very safe with minimum street selling.

It's very good place to walk around. It's safe and there are a lot of restaurants and bars. You can see some shows on the street. Try Canelazo it's an ecuatorian hot drink. Night time is better time to go.

Historic district with many small shops. We visited a chocolate shop and watched a demonstration of candy making.

A neat little section of Quito; that, as a brochure notes, "narrates its history through traditional or contemporary styles and techniques." We went during the day when not all the shops were open (apparently it is quite lively at night); but were especially struck by...More
