Discover the European charm and character of the first French City in North America as you explore the city sites and learn the fascinating history of Quebec’s legacy. Perched on a hill overlooking the St. Lawrence River is Chateau Frontenac, the best-known landmark in Quebec. Located just outside the chateau is the romantic boardwalk known as Dufferin Terrace from where you’ll have a spectacular view of the St. Lawrence River, Ile d’Orleans and the Laurentian Mountains.
Passing through the St. Louis Gate, next explore the National Battlefields Park, with a short photo stop at Cap Diamant. Continue on past the trendy Grand Allee, the Champs-Elysees of Quebec lined with quaint shops, sidewalk cafes and boutiques. Next, pass the Hotel du Parliament, an imposing Second Empire-style building. Within minutes of the walled city of Old Quebec are the beautiful pastoral landscapes of Quebec’s countryside. A photo stop will be made at the Montmorency Falls where you'll enjoy the breathtaking views and see the powerful forces of natures as the water of the Montmorency River roars down the cliff to eventually meet with the St. Lawrence River.
