From Petit-Champlain to Saint-Roch

Often underestimated by visitors, Quebec's lower city is filled with beautiful places and sights. It could be your chance to discover this vibrant area.

The tour begins near Petit-Champlain - dubbed one of Canada's most beautiful streets - to then move to Pointe-à-Carcy and the old harbour. There you'll be able to have a nice peek on the river and the marina. We'll make a stop at the harbour market so you may have to chance to see and buy fresh delicious local products. Still further, you'll come across the beautiful gare-du-palais, and then proceed to St-Roch to have a glimpse at its imposing church and the popular St-Joseph street. There's only one thing missing there:



We begin by first visiting the old lower city, which is below Château frontenac. Then we will move on to St-Pierre St. to take St-Paul and towards Bassin Louise and the marina. There we will then move on to the old harbour market where you'll be able to see local products/craftsmanship and perhaps buy some. Afterwards we will move to St-Roch, pass on St-Joseph St and visit the St-Roch church. We will then get to St-Valier Est for the end of our tour and then go to agreed tour end.
