    We participated in a tour of 45 minutes. Admission to Parks Canada in 2017 is free, but it costs $ 3.90 for a tour. It is held at 9: 00 or 10:15 in the morning. So, the tours take place before opening to the public scheduled at 11: 00. You can get our ticket for the tour at the booth of the Chateau Frontenac, located near the funicular. Antoine, our guide, told us the story of the forts and castles with always interesting to know anecdotes. Why Samuel de Champlain was never Governor? What is the relationship between a castle and a Governor? Why have we found so many seals of Governor Beauharnois bottle? What purpose was the domestic dog in the kitchen? For what reason we used salts of ammonia? Treasures in the latrine? A guided tour will teach you all of these interesting details. 2017 schedule from May 20 to October 9, from 11: 00 to 18: 00

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
