I used to say" this is so like France!" Well, may be so, but it is so like Quebec, too! Beautiful, lovely artisan shops, stroll able, always. What is not to love about Quebec City?

This is where Samuel de Champlain first arrived to settle this beautiful city, very rich in history. Check out la Maison Chevalier.

It was fun to walk around in this plaza. The shops were quaint. You need to stop in the rock, gem or mineral shop. I could of spent hours there looking!

A great gathering place, a square to walk around and just enjoy the sights, shops and the ambiance (and of course, the tourists, the other tourists (like you).)

Pretty French architecture. There is a lifelike mural covering the whole side of a building. Interesting shops as one wanders through to the old town.

Place Royale is a step back into Europe with it's stunning architecture, street artisans and performers. Just a step from Petit Champlain. A cultural experience not to be overlooked!

This place is a must see place for couples during Christmas. A very different atmosphere than a city, almost like a movie plateau from pirates of the Caribbean. And with some snow and Christmas trees and lights everywhere. And it's free to wander around historical streets.
