Quebec City - A taste of Old Europe
Quebec City is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in North America. Palace Royale is the site of the original settlement of the city of Quebec, set inside the old walled city. Traditional stone buildings line the river and cobblestone streets are lined with artists displaying their work. The famous Fairmont Chateau Frontenac is situated in the heart of historic Old Quebec City, set high on a bluff overlooking the St. Lawrence River, close to boutique shopping and quaint restaurants. From the moment you arrive you will see that life around the Frontenac is reflective of this vibrant city.

A city sightseeing tour should include a journey through the old walled city to the Place d’Armes and the Citadel, the official residence of the governor-general in French Canada, and the largest fort on the continent. Everything you want to do or see is within easy walking distance. The charm of the streets and buildings in the Petit Champlain is reason enough to visit, and the shops offer items that are unique to Quebec. Horse drawn carriages, sidewalk cafes, street entertainers, brightly covered building, flowers and a warm welcome, all add to the enjoyment of this wonderful city.

Breathtaking views at every turn Charlevoix is a beautiful region with magnificent scenery that attracts painters, poets, writers and visitors. If you leave the highways and travel along the secondary roads of the towns and villages you will witness the way of life that ensures the livelihood of local residents. These secondary roads offer irresistible breathtaking scenery.

Montreal is a modern Cosmopolitan City and the second French-speaking city in the world. This dynamic and modern region has preserved its architectural heritage. A bustling cosmopolitan city with life at the foot of its mountain, while its history is rooted in the old quarters near the river. With its year-round party atmosphere, Montreal beats to the rhythm of its festivals: jazz, comedy, cinema, fireworks and more!

A visit to the Province of Quebec will leave a lasting impression a part of Canada you won’t ever forget.
