    It would really be a shame to miss this wonderful walk, especially in weather sunny. The view of the river and the river is breathtaking. It is relatively easy and accessible to all on the first part. The bravest will be able to work the muscles of the legs up the 300 steps leading to the plain and the Citadel a tour bus also allows you to go to the plain and to the trip in direction opposite, IE down the 300 stairs if you prefer

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.
