About Quebec City

One of the oldest European cities in North America, Quebec City encompasses the "Historic District of Old Québec”, declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site which presents travelers with an older world charm. The city has been beautifully embedded with its history, displaying an extensive French influence, with the smell of fresh-baked bread, the taste of creamy cafe lattes, and buttery croissants pleasing the senses without fail. The bustling streets during the winter carnival are a witness of the city’s popularity as a tourist destination. The well-known sites of Quebec City, especially in the neighborhood of Old Quebec, can be traveled on foot in order to save money on transport, hence leaving travelers with more bucks to spend on souvenirs to capture memories for a lifetime!
