City Information

Québec City

Boasting quaint cobblestone streets and towering cathedrals, Québec City will make you feel like you are in France, with a unique Canadian touch. The city’s prime attraction lies in its Old Quarter, which features winding cobblestone streets and some of the city’s most iconic architectural marvels such as the Citadel or the Notre-Dame Basilica. Take a stroll around the quarter, and you might find yourself transported to Europe. If you wish to take a break from the hustles and bustles of a big city for a while, drive 9 miles northeast of the Old Town and you will reach Montmorency Falls Park, with its iconic 272-foot fall. The park’s idyllic beauty and its amazing landmarks will certainly strike a chord with nature lovers. For those who just can’t have enough with the town’s interesting history, head over to Place-Royale, which was the original birthplace of the French Colony and the French-American community.

Québec City’s food scene features a very strong French influence. If you want to try local specialties with a distinctive French twist, try La Traite or Le Clocher Penché. For lavish dinners, head over to Restaurant Initiale. And for a chic bachelorette party trip, plan to hit up Québec City's spas and book an afternoon tea.

The city’s principal VIA Rail train station is the Gare du Palais, and the main bus station is right next to it. The main airport in the city is the Jean Lesage International Airport, 8.1 miles west of the city.
