Quebec City is capital of Quebec and the province’s second-largest city, after Montreal. One of the oldest cities in Canada, parts of its historic old town (Vieux-Quebec) are Unesco-listed, characterised by European-style churches, ramparts and fortified walls.
The city sits above the St Lawrence river; its highest point, Cape Diamond, is 103 metres above it. Divided into two parts, the Upper (Haute-Ville) and Lower Towns (Basse-Ville) each have a distinct flavour. They are connected by the Escalier steps and the Old Quebec Funicular.
The Lower Town has the ancient Notre Dame des Victoires church, the Petit Champlain district, the port, and the Musée de la Civilisation.
One of Quebec’s signature events is its spectacular winter carnival. The city comes alive in the snow, with concerts and night parades. There is no bad time to snap up Quebec flights however. Summers are warm and the "fall foliage" is beautiful.
