Quebec City

A world heritage treasure

Overview

Quebec City is beautiful, oozing a real old world charm. Cobbled streets, designer boutiques, Parisian-style cafes, impressive architecture and intriguing history make this a holiday destination to remember.

See Canada's oldest city from the deck of a cruise boat on the St. Lawrence River. As you cruise along the shoreline, a guide relates the story of ‘New France' and tells you about the origins of Quebec's most famous landmarks. Relax and take in the spectacular views of the Chateau Frontenac, Cap Diamant, Ile d'Orleans and Montmorency Falls. And just when you think you have seen it all, you can hop on the famous Faubourg Elevator to visit the inspiring Saint Jean Baptiste district.

Whether you seek a chic city break holiday dining out on world-class cuisine and spending your days hitting the designer boutiques, or you are stopping off on your action packed self-drive tour, there is something for everyone waiting to be discovered on a Quebec City holiday.

Things to do

Parliament Hill is one of the most popular tourist spots in the city, and the impressive building is home of the National Assembly. The area surrounding Parliament hill is beautiful with unique neighbourhoods to explore and incredible architecture. The streets here are busy and are lined with Parisian-style cafes, restaurants, luxurious hotels and trendy nightclubs.

While in Quebec, a must is a visit to Montmorency Falls. Reaching higher heights than Niagara Falls, you have the unique experience of walking the width of this natural wonder via a suspension bridge. Take the gondola to the peak and walk the bridge across – certainly not for the faint of hearted – but you can always take the stairs up or down the length as well.

• One of the best ways to see this beautiful city is on a St Lawrence River cruise. As you cruise along the shoreline, a guide relates the story of ‘New France’ and tells you about the origins of Quebec’s most famous landmarks.


Top Tip 2

• Take a trip to Old Quebec and take a snap of Chateau Frontenac, which is the most photographed hotel in the world. The old world European feel of this area is charming, with horse-drawn carriages, street entertainers, singers and artists offer something new around every corner.
