Québec City

Travel to Québec City

An enclave of French culture and history, wrapped within centuries-old fortifications, Québec City’s historic district is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of ramparts, churches, terrace restaurants and well-trod cobblestone streets. Yet its old-world authenticity co-exists with a thriving Indigenous culture and surrounding natural landscape that includes the monumental Montmorency Falls and bucolic Île d’Orléans. This bounty is celebrated in the warm-and-welcoming Québécois lifestyle and year-round festivities, from summertime music atop the Plains of Abraham to a frosty toast in the Hôtel de Glace.


Don’t miss the iconic spots and hidden gems. No matter where you go in Québec City, there are amazing itinerary ideas for you to explore.
