    Reflect on the history of the battlements and the exquisite gateways as you wander around, don't forget to mount the stairs to the upper reaches too!  more »

    Did you know that Québec is the only walled city in North America? And you don't even have to write down "address"; When you come to the old Québec, you certainly will pass through walls! (But it's OK ... If you insist on an address to put into Google Maps, write down: in front of the Parliament in St. Louis. You can't miss it!) It is important to stress that the place offers a distinct beauty during the day and night, you know? Well worth to check out there on both occasions. And you can still explore the upper part of the walls. 😉--> Hey! Come on my blog Vivajando where I share several free tours by the charming town of Quebec. I'm sure you will enjoy!

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.
