With a World Heritage-listed old town, Quebec City remains a walkable and safe hub of culture, commerce, and education offering a blend of fascinating history and a range of tourist-oriented activities.
Place Royale and Basilique Cathedrale - Notre-Dame-de-Quebec will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Terrasse Dufferin and Old Quebec. Change things up with a short trip to Sanctuaire Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre in Sainte Anne de Beaupre (about 30 minutes away). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Quartier Petit Champlain, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, appreciate the extensive heritage of Lower Town (Basse-Ville), and contemplate the long history of Battlefields Park (Parc des Champs-de-Bataille).
