Explore Quebec City

Loaded with European charm, Quebec City offers visitors a chance to get a taste of France without leaving the continent. As you stroll through the cobbled streets of Haute-Ville (Upper Town) and Basse-Ville (Lower Town), pop into a boulangerie or patisserie for croissants along the way. Quebec City is the only walled city north of Mexico, so definitely check out the ramparts and walk the perimeter. You can see the mighty St. Lawrence River from Terrasse Dufferin or the Plains of Abraham, not to mention the stunning Chateau Frontenac—there's really not a bad view to be found. While there are plenty of worthwhile sights to fill up your itinerary, the best way to experience the city is to simply slow down and do as the locals do—take in the amazing food scene and just kick back. We've got all your recs below.

Immerse yourself in Québecois Culture in Québec City

Many people say that Québec City is the most European of any North American city. That may be true, but it also has a culture and a vibe that is all its own. The Francophone capital is one of the best places to immerse yourself in Québec’s language, history and distinct cuisine. Here are a few places to visit during your next trip.
Caleigh Alleyne, Toronto, Canada
  • Auberge Saint-Antoine
    Located in Québec City’s Old Port, Auberge Saint-Antoine, was once a former military warehouse that has been transformed into a hotel overlooking the St. Lawrence River. The foundation from colonial times is still visible through a glass window on the hotel's lobby-level. While this area was once a bustling commercial and military port, guests are now just steps away from the city’s most sought-after restaurants, shops and sites.
  • Fairmont Le Château Frontenac
    The Fairmont Le Château Frontenac opened in 1893 as one of the Canadian Pacific Railway hotels that spanned across Canada. This castle-like structure is one of the most recognisable landmarks of the city’s skyline. Choose between rooms with an aerial view of the St. Lawrence River or a city view overlooking the historic quarter of Old Québec City. There are also five restaurants and bars for visitors who just want a peek inside the historic hotel.
  • Le Monastere des Augustines
    Le Monastere des Augustines transformed Québec City’s first hospital, Hôtel-Dieu de Québec, into a place where guests can dine at their health-centric raw food cafeteria, learn about the monastery at the on-site museum that has over 1,000 artifacts on display or stay on-property in a modern room or a traditional monastic cell. Visitors staying elsewhere in the city are welcome to pop by for a meal and wander through the exhibitions.
  • Musée de l'Amérique Francophone
    The Musée de l’Amérique Francophone in Old Québec tells the story of French culture in North America through interactive and informative displays in the oldest museum in Canada. It is fitting that the museum is located in a seminary since Québec's history has long been intertwined with the Catholic Church.
  • Notre-Dame de Québec Basilica-Cathedral
    The Notre-Dame de Québec Basilica-Cathedral is not only a focal point in the older city, but it is historically significant because it was the first Catholic parish built north of the Spanish colonies in North America in 1647. However, since its initial construction, it has been destroyed by fire twice and rebuilt. It is now the final resting place of four governors of New France and a unique spot to admire Québecois art and architecture.
  • Buffet de l'Antiquaire
    Buffet de l’Antiquaire serves Québecois comfort food from breakfast to dinner in this quaint neighbourhood restaurant with only 50 seats. Their traditional family recipes hail from Québec's lower St. Lawrence region, known for being hearty and comforting to keep you warm on those cold winter nights. Uniquely Québecois dishes are indicated on the menu with a blue symbol to make it easier for guests to pick out the house specialties and family recipes.
  • Aux Anciens Canadiens
    Aux Anciens Canadiens is not only located in the oldest house in Québec City, built in 1675, but its menu has classic Québecois dishes passed down through the generations. Open for lunch and dinner, the three-course tasting menu has a selection of dishes made with traditional and local ingredients, such as bison bourguignon and caribou from northern Québec.
  • La Buche
    For a more contemporary take on classic Québecois dishes, La Bûche has revitalised the classic sugar shack-style restaurant. Located near La Citadelle de Québec, this restaurant takes a modern spin on tourtière, pea soup, and poutine, or you can order the tasting menu to try it all. For dessert, you won't want to leave without trying the pouding chômeur covered in local maple syrup with the option to top it off with bacon crisps.
