Quebec City is the perfect destination for those who want to experience European flair without leaving home too far behind. With a French-speaking culture and old-world architecture, this metropolitan area is a cultural destination that shouldn't be missed.

Old Quebec City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a decidedly European appeal. The area has more than 100 restaurants to delight culinary travelers, including many sidewalk cafes and bistros. Visitors will also want to explore one of the major Quebec City attractions, La Citadelle, a major fortress that took more than 30 years to build and features changing of the guard ceremonies in the summer.


Flights to Quebec City land at Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport.
