In this paper, the ALICE results on heavy-flavour and quarkonium production in pp and Pb–Pb collisions at the LHC are discussed. The study of heavy flavours and quarkonia provides valuable information to characterize the hot medium created in heavy-ion collisions. Heavy-flavours are measured at mid- and forward-rapidity via their hadronic and semi-leptonic decays. J/ψ mesons are reconstructed from their e+e− and μ+μ− decays at central and forward rapidity, respectively.
