14 In Canada/ Travel

Quebec City, Quebec

We only had an evening in Quebec City, but it was a great one. We didn’t really go into any sites, we simply strolled though this beautiful city. It was like walking in a small French town. The only two things that we really did were: walk up the old city walls and overlook the beautiful buildings, and then we drove up to the citadel for another view. I don’t really have a lot of information for you so, I’ll let our pictures do the talking.

    We are in Quebec in a few weeks, and staying Montreal 2 nights. Still haven’t decided if Quebec City is worth a quick side trip…. It would eat into the 3 days planned in Montreal. Lovely pics!

      I really liked Quebec City. It was a nice, relaxing day for us. We didn’t do much of anything, we just walked around the city, but we had been doing a lot of site-seeing so it was a good break. I think that it looked more like a French village, but there is so much to see in Montreal. We spent a little less than two days in Montreal, and there were still a few things we wanted to do. I think if you have a big list in Montreal- do that, but if you’d like a relaxing (and romantic) evening go up to Quebec City.

      It really is beautiful. We enjoyed just walking around- it’s incredibly romantic also, so it’s a good place to visit with your husband. Thanks for reading!

    […]  Quebec City, Canada was such a beautiful cozy city. I truly adored walking to the riverfront lookout (even though it was crazy cold), wandering through the streets, driving the crazy citadel maze and climbing to the top of the old city walls that looked out over the city. This beautiful church in the middle of the European-looking downtown was one of my favorite things we saw. I would love to go back and visit this city in the summer or fall and explore even more!
