The streets are paved with Cobble Stones and are a bit hilly so she might find manoeuvring the area a bit challenging.

Hotel in old Quebec city (5 Replies)
Hi, Mother and daughter shopping trip. We have narrowed down we want a hotel in the Old Port area or Quartier Petit Champlain. Most of the hotels I have found list only rooms with 1 bed and we really want two. Any recommendation for a hotel with 2 beds for under $350 per night ? Thank you

The Quartier Petit Champlain is just a cute street with lots of shops and restaurants. It doesn't have any hotels as it really isn't big enough. You could look in the Old Port area however considering your two bed requirement I would not limit your geographic area. The Hotel Champlain in Upper Town has large rooms with some having two beds. The Deluxe rooms have two queen beds.

Flights for Quebec visit in July from U.S. (3 Replies)
Just beginning to research flights and am curious, fly into Quebec or Montreal? How much of a drive from Montreal is it to Quebec City? I thought I saw 50k, but then I saw a "two and a half hour drive" and that just didn't compute. Does one airport have more flights coming into it from the states than the other....and is there a price difference? We'll only have about 4 days....and I'm thinking we want to stick with Quebec City for this trip, stay near the Quartier Petit Champlain(looks...More

Hi snookowl How much of a drive MTL-QC City? From the airport to Old Québec, about 270 km. 2,5 hours driving time applies to driving from downtown to downtown, so I would say closer to 3 hours if you keep in mind what might slow you down: check-out procedures, time of landing (rush hour around Dorval, eastbound, is a bit of a nightmare), and lack of experience of the roads/streets. MTL's airport certainly has more flights fom US, since it's the biggest airport in the province - QC's airport...More

I am working on finalizing a Quebec City/Montreal/Toronto trip in early July. Overall we'll be there for 10 days splitting it in 3, 2 and 2 days and couple of days for flexibility to see anything else of interest and driving between the cities or take a detour at 1000 island. For Quebec City, here are few things which are on top of the list: 1. Old Québec 2. Quartier Petit Champlain & Place Royale 3. Montmorency Falls 4. Lower Town (Basse-Ville) 5.

You could go to Montmorency falls and Ile D'orleans on the same day. Depending on your expectations.. Ile D'Orleans is worth it if you enjoy quaint and rural area by the river.
