Fall in love and admire Quebec

Are you dreaming of a trip to Europe? You probably sare, like most of us. But it’s just that not everyone can afford the luxury of travelling beyond the ocean. That’s why it’s worth looking for certain European attributes here on site - in the exquisite and underrated town of Quebec. What's so European about it?

Let’s think about it, while wandering around Quebec. Walk along the street of Saint-Jean, where you can see a combination of European tradition and modern Canadian culture. Strolling along it, you can admire the unique defensive walls stretching for 4.6 kilometers from Faubourg Saint-Jean to Old Quebec. But not only are the walls exceptional here – there are many grocery stores with unique spices and fruits, incredible and unique boutiques, cozy pubs and cafes encouraging you to rest – this is what is tempting in Saint-Jain.

Is this the only attraction of Quebec? Of course not - lovers of sightseeing will definitely be attracted by the Basilica based on the Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac. Also the Epicerie I Moisan, i.e. the oldest grocery store in North America is also worth noting. If we also throw in the Musee de la Civilisation, unusual antique shops and the breathtaking Fresque des Quebec, then surely none of us will want to leave the city. That's not all – amateur artists are encouraged to visit the numerous galleries located in the Old Port. However, fans of strong sensations are urged to ride the cable car to the Dufferin Terrace, a stretch inclined at an angle of 45 degrees to the ground. From the queue, you can admire the panorama of the St. Lawrence River and the Lower Town.

If you desire fresh air you must see the Plains of Abraham. In the historical Plains of Abraham is the prestigious city park. Outside the city you will find the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency. There you'll see the 272 foot high waterfall, enjoy the views from the cable car, go to the suspended bridge and climb the cliff. You can also visit the Canyon Sainte-Anne, which is considered the greatest attraction of Canada. If you want to go on hiking trails, do some mountain biking or kayaking you can not miss out on the BRAS Vallee-du-Nord

After some time spent exploring the hundreds of interesting places, you will certainly find some solace in the hundreds of bars, restaurants and shops. We especially recommend Saint-Joseph Street and of course the Grande Allee

Therefore, if you are looking for sensations like those in Europe - you will experience them in Quebec!
