Exploring Québec City's history can be an all-consuming pastime, and a rewarding one. The walk outlined below takes you through much of it, but sticking slavishly to a route would be a mistake. The Old City is full of inviting little detours and alleyways. Don't bother resisting them.
Exploring La Citadelle; leisurely strolling along the Terrasse Dufferin; walking along rue du Petit-Champlain in the Old City.
The Wolfe Monument, on the far western side of the Plains of Abraham outside the walls of the city.
On rue du Petit-Champlain, in the Lower Town section of the Old City.
Best Time to Go:
If you're looking to avoid crowds, on a weekday morning. In summer, the rue du Petit-Champlain can get so crowded it can literally be hard to walk.
