Attraction

Take a walk down the cobblestone streets of Canada's oldest neighbourhood, the Petit-Champlain District. See where Samuel de Champlain first founded Quebec City in 1608, then browse the area's many unique shops, galleries and eateries. Before you go, swing by the Old Port - a restored 19th century harbour, now a busy cruise port and home to an open-air market, numerous bike paths and tons to see and do.
