The fairy-tale world of Quebec City

Look out for a fairy-tale world in the Saint Lawrence River valley, where the pretty Quebec City is settled for ages. Head for Old Quebec and Place Royale to find European charms like quaint stone buildings and the cute winding streets arrayed with shops and restaurants. Wandering through the streets of Lower Town will unearth beautiful murals and designs from the old era. If you can’t do without shopping and coffee, check out the warehouses-turned-modern age shops, boutique hotels, art galleries, restaurants and bars with a lot of noise and cheer. St-Jean-Baptiste quarter, Avenue Cartier and Grande-Allée are also happening places for partying and letting one’s hair down.
