From the heights of the upper town, you can enjoy sweeping views out over the water.

  • Take a bike ride through the Old City. Take the zip line st Montmorency Falls just outside town. Take in a show in French at Capitole de Quebec.  more »
  • Despite a flood and a chilly wind, here we are crossing the gate st jean protecting old Quebec. Shopping streets in transition from halloween to Christmas decors. Walls, cannons, funicular, Castle, lower town and the port. Merchants and restaurants. Just what we like. We preferred compared to Montreal. Not to be missed.
