A stroll through Old Quebec

A fantastic way to discover Quebec City is by visiting Old Quebec on foot. Les Promenades Fantômes, a guided walking tour hosted by intriguing characters, is a great opportunity to learn more about the city’s history. Picnicking on the Plains of Abraham, enjoying an ice cream treat from one of the many ice cream shops in Old Quebec or riding a bike are other ways to spend some quality time in the Old Capital.
