Often considered to be the shiniest jewel on the French Canada crown (much to Montreal’s despair), Quebec City is the only walled city north of Mexico and one of North America’s oldest settlements. With its uneven cobblestones streets, 17th-century manors, and the beautiful Old Port, it’s no wonder the Old Town would be a UNESCO World Heritage site.
But after celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2008, Quebec City opted to focus on the future and has undergone many updates since. But between the new attractions and the historical must-do’s and with just 48 hours in the city, where to start? Where can you grab a bite and not get ripped off? What are the best hotels in Old Quebec?
Everything you need to know about visiting Quebec City is right below. Bon voyage!
(The list only features what I consider to be the must do’s. The map has a few more places if you want to try other things!)
