While most of our time was spent in Vieux (Old) Québec, I was pleasantly surprised at how vibrant Québec City is, with more to offer than just the historic district.

Luckily, when we explored Québec City, less crowds were present, allowing us to be the only people on certain charming cobblestone streets!

No matter when you visit Québec City, you will love the European charm and romantic-feel of this historic city!

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac is a Québec landmark. Located in Haute-Ville (Upper Town), this “castle” was built in 1893, overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

The Notre-Dame de Québec Basilica-Cathedral was built in 1647, and is the first Catholic parish and cathedral in Canada.

La Citadelle de Québec is the largest British fortress in North America. The first residents were British soldiers, then the Royal Canadian Artillery.

Québec City didn’t disappoint, with delightful houses and buildings throughout Vieux-Québec that made me want to move into one of these charming Québec homes!

Québec City is a beautiful city to walk around, but at night the city lights up and shines like a beacon upon the banks of the St. Lawrence River!
