Quebec City Journey - Making Quebec City Travel Easy

At Quebec City Journey we have developed an informative, up-to-date hotel directory. The site equips you with all of the information you need to know before you embark on Montréal travel. Examples of hotels featured in this directory include Auberge Saint-Antoine, Dominion 1912, Hotel 71 Soixante & Onze, Manoir Victoria and the majestic Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac.

Perched on the majestic St. Lawrence River, Québec City possesses all the charm, beauty and history of a European city. It also has all the fun, boasting events like the renowned Carnaval, the huge winter festival that attracts visitors from all around the globe. The oldest part of the city, Vieux-Québec, is still surrounded by fortified walls and was named a UNESCO heritage site in 1985 - the only site in North America to receive this designation.

Upper and Lower Towns

Québec City is comprised of the Upper and Lower Towns. Travellers can climb the Breakneck Staircase to access the areas, but those not up for the steep climb can also use the Funicular, a cable-car which links the towns. The Funicular offers spectacular views of the city and the St. Lawrence as it sweeps travellers from one town to the other. Ancient fortress walls surround Quebec’s Upper Town, and the bustling Lower Town features many historic attractions as well as dozens of bistros, restaurants and sidewalk cafes.

Feature Hotels
Attractions

There is a reason the Chateau Frontenac is said to be the world’s most photographed hotel. Towering over the city from its Upper Town location, this fairy-tale castle with medieval gables, stone towers and copper turrets has housed royalty, politicians and celebrities since 1893. Another popular destination is the historic Place-Royale square, the town plaza in the heart of Lower Town which has served as social meeting place for centuries. History buffs will be fascinated by the Citadel, the fort used to protect the city after the War of 1812, and a stroll through Battlefield Park will lead you to the grassy Plains of Abraham, the very site of the monumental battle that led to the British control of Québec in 1759.

Shopping and Dining

Québec City’s Lower Town boasts the oldest commercial area in North America - the Petit Champlain Shopping District (Quartier Petit Champlain). The Petit Champlain Shopping District is named for Samuel de Champlain, who founded the city over four centuries ago in 1608. The boutiques which line the cobblestone streets of this pedestrian-only area feature a variety of offerings from jewellery by local artisans to chic designer apparel. Gourmands have dozens of excellent dining options in Québec City, many proudly featuring local meat, cheese and produce. And to shop for fresh fare right from the source, head to the Old Port Market. This vibrant marketplace features stands of colourful fruit and vegetables as well as regional breads, cheeses, wines, and maple syrup.

Museums

Québec City is a cultural hotspot and one of the most popular destinations is the Museum of Civilization (Musée de la Civilisation) which is situated close to the Place-Royale. This innovative museum complex features engaging interactive exhibits and is a family favourite. Other fascinating museums include the Musée du Fort and the Museum of French America, which chronicle Québec’s settlement.
