We were pleased with our trip. The Quebec City is fantastic place to visit, the people is friendly. A beautiful city rich in Canada's history, legacy and culture. :)

Site of THE FIRST home ("abitation") of Champlain. Now the site of Notre Dame des Victoires (not to be confused with the "big" Notre Dame in Haute Ville-- our Ladies sure do get around....). The Place Royale museum has a pretty cool 3D movie about Champlain (when we visited anyway), a bunch of artifacts, installations about historical trade and commerce,... More

A little piece of Europe tucked into this plaza area near the old port area. Lots of very nice shops, museums and great eating places nearby. It's down a hundred steps from the Upper Town, but well worth the visit. Try the Civilization museum nearby--it's free on Wednesdays in the Winter.

What a treat this small pocket of Quebec City offers. Museums, churches and great food. Step back in tame and soak up the past.

All sense of North America is lost. You really feel like you're in medieval Eupore. It's probably also the most opened spaced part of the Old Town.

It was a nice walking tour but we went in January and it was unbelievably cold so we cut it short. The area is great with plenty of shops and restuarants

Though there are several very touristy shops on the square, it's worth a trip to see this beautiful square. We walked through it several times during our stay and it was picture perfect. Full of snow and Christmas decorations, just gorgeous. Plus we had the added pleasure of going inside the little church in the square. My ancestors helped settled... More

Decked out for the Christmas holidays, this location in old Quebec was my favourite! It had many numerous little shops and cafe's and was a step back to old times with the cobblestone walkways and historical buildings.
