Old Town is the entire historic district, both Haute (upper) town and lower. Lower is along the river, and is the original, older part of town nice restaurants, hotels, the Musee de la Civilisation, etc. You can walk up steep streets or steps to the Upper town (larger, more restaurants/hotels, Chateau de Frontenac, Plains of Abraham, connected to the rest of Quebec) or take the Funicular. They're just different parts of the same smallish area, like midtown Manhattan and the theatre district.

We walked around the upper and lower town but took a city tour with a tour company to see where we wanted to spend more time. You can call in the visitor centre and get plenty of information that will help you.
