More About Quebec, Canada
North America's little Europe
Quebec City is a charming destination that offers visitors a chance to get a taste of France without leaving the continent. You'll feel utterly transported strolling through the cobbled streets of Haute-Ville (Upper Town) and Basse-Ville (Lower Town), popping into boulangeries and patisseries for a croissant or tucking into a creperie. Impressive views will catch your eye from every direction as you walk the ramparts of the walled city, look out over the mighty St. Lawrence River from Terrasse Dufferin or the Plains of Abraham, and gaze up at the stunning Chateau Frontenac. While there are plenty of worthwhile sights to fill up your itinerary, the best way to experience the city is to take your pace down a few notches and enjoy the same joie de vivre as the locals.
