Great way to get up and down from the old town and the Chateau Frontenac area. Its only $3 each way its a must see even if you love climbing stairs!

The best spent money of the trip! After climbing up the hills for a couple of days, we decided to bite the bullet and ride the Funicular, expecting it to be a crazy price. It was only $3/person.

If you want to go to the lower part of town without having to walk something close to 220 steps (I counted) then you can pay $3.00 and go down in the furnicular. You won't miss anything by not going on it

A godsend and cheap and a must on at least one occasion. Always face the way down as you up so that you see the views

It is a very short ride for $3.00, but after walking around in Vieux-Québec all day, it saves taking the stairs.

Easy way to get from Lower Quebec City to the top. The Funicular was closed due to the G7 delegates on one of the days we visited. So happy when it reopened.

One of the many marvelous things to do in Quebec City is to ride the funicular from the waterfront to the old city. Certainly easier than climbing the hill! The ride gives you great panoramic views of the lower city and the water. Highly recommend.

I thought it would be more extensive than it was but I was so thankful to not walk down. The old city can take a toll on your knees and feet so this was a welcome reprieve.

There are stairs that go down to the lower city, but this is more fun & a must for returning back to the upper city.

I spent a very happy hour or two strolling around the quirky little shops in the lower quarter of the city before returning by the funicular. It is a short little ride on the funicular between the lower and upper level of the town. I...More

For our stay, we parked in a parking garage and walked everywhere. This garage would be about 2 blocks away from the top side of the funicular, on the other side of the Hotel Frontenac. Not sure if there are others closer... More
