About Historic Quebec City
Quebec City has retained its historic charms throughout the years, and was the first urban area in North America to be designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are many historic and religious attractions spread throughout the narrow cobblestone streets.
Quebec City is the only walled city in Canada, with fortifications dating back to the 18th century. These walls add to the atmosphere of the city, and make for a pleasant place to stroll along.

Heel gezellige plek in Quebec ; "The old Quebec" of "Le Vieux Quebec" is volgens mij het mooiste deel van de stad; heel gezellige winkel straatjes met tal van souvenirwinkeltjes en lekker restaurantjes in een aangename sfeer. Er zijn twee muurschilderingen die de moeite waard zijn (je komt ze zeker wel tegen als je de stad wat doorwandelt). Le Chateau Frontenac, een heel imposant en chique vijfsterrenhotel is heel indrukwekkend en het is zeker een bezoekje waard ! Alle toffe touristische attracties zijn hier gelegen, je zal je hier zeker niet vervelen...

I've stayed in an cute little auberge in Vieux Quebec twice now, it's just down the street from Chateau Frontenac. The name of the place is Auberge Saint Louis - the rooms are small and quaint, but breakfast is to die for. Pain dore and maple syrup. If you're in Quebec, try to visit the Plains of Abraham, and the Museum of Civilization. If you can't, just walk down the cobblestone streets of the old part of the city - it's the only fortified city on North America that's still inhabited.

Its been some time since I was there but at the time I thought it to be one of the nicest cities I ever visited. I really liked the historic value of the city.
One Comment: It pays to have some knowledge of the French language, it makes life there so much easier.

There aren't many places in Canada where you might mistakenly think you've somehow ended up in Europe. The narrow cobbled streets, family shops and culture of historic Quebec City could be the best place to experience this feeling, and appreciate the history of Canada.
