Wear comfortable shoes, it is worth the multiple kms. of walking.
Don't forget the lower city area, very quaint and unique.

I loved the history and charm of this town.
It will cost you nothing but thousands of footsteps to walk back in time to visit the Plains of Abraham and streets full of old homes and churches. This interspersed with the old ramparts and canons. With the amount of canon and defenses here it really is a surprise that the British were able to overcome this city in 1759 but as the story goes they snuck in the back door by scaling the cliffs. We came here in October and were rewarded with warm skies and way less tourists.
Bon Voyage

Famously lovely to see and walk around in. Charming and old European. See it as a town on foot. We took a tour but, later went on our own. We were glad to get the guide to tell of the important information but, like to see the town on our own, too. They are proud to point out the the place is safe and visitor friendly.

What a beautiful city. Charming in every way imaginable. Very clean and safe. Take the double decker bus tour it is a hop on hop off and worth the price especially the two day pass. We are ready to go back.
