Overview

This is the only walled city in all of North America, and those walls encompass the Old Town section of Québec City. Old Town itself contains the Old Port area, at the banks of the St. Lawrence, and a portion of upper town, dominated by Le Château Frontenac hotel. It's quite walkable, but do bring a map, as the winding streets can be confusing.

WHEN TO GO


The weather is mildest from late May through early October. Note that summer (mid-June through mid-September) tends to be relatively humid. Winters can be severe, so pack accordingly.

HOW TO GET THERE


Québec's Old Town is a 30-minute drive from Jean Lesage International Airport (418-640-2600; www.aeroportdequebec.com). The taxi rate is fixed at $29 U.S. for the trip.

GETTING AROUND


Inside the Old Town, everything is pretty much within walking distance, although you may opt for a taxi in chilly weather. It's often easier to hire one at a stand rather than hail one. Or call Taxi Coop Québec (415-525-5191; www.taxicoop-quebec.com). The local public transportation system is safe and convenient. Buses charge CAD $2.50, in exact change only (418-627-2511; www.rtcquebec.ca).
