With a World Heritage-listed old town, Quebec City remains a walkable and safe hub of culture, commerce, and education offering a blend of fascinating history and a range of tourist-oriented activities.
Old Quebec and Place Royale are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre and Old Port. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Breakneck Steps (L'Escalier Casse-Cou), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Eglise Notre Dame des Victoires, look for gifts at Quartier Petit Champlain, and brush up on your military savvy at La Citadelle de Quebec.
