Disappointed that there were no tours during the end of May and beginning of June even though there were many tourists.

This is such a beautiful little place to see. For movie amateurs, the scene from "Catch Me If You Can" where Frank is finally arrested was partially filmed there. It is a gorgeous place, winter or summer.

Apart from the innumerable souvenir shop, Place Royale has very few things to be written about excepting the old styled french chateaus and the Museum which has a complete wall four storied high with a painting that will make you believe that this is really the side of the building.

Place Royale was fascinating--the buildings have all been rebuilt and are just gorgeous. You can visit a part of the Musee de Civilization right in the square (our favorite part of the Musee). There are restaurants, ice cream shops (one of which is where we had some of the most wonderful d'Erable ice cream ever!) and shops to look through. Historic tours are going on all over the place and you can learn so much from them about Quebec's history.

I love museums that don't take forever to tour. This one is convenient and efficiently laid-out, so you get a good sense of old Quebec without sacrificing too much time or money.
