    Very European experience in North America. Very historic and old world. Clean. They have preserved their history very well and it's fascinating. Lots of historic markers and preserved buildings.
    Beautiful views of the St. Lawrence River.

    We took a bus tour to the falls. It was a beautiful area. I just wish we could have spent more time there taking photos.

    Great city views! We visited in April during a few cold, wet, windy days, so there were no crowds or activities. It’s beautiful at night!

    So picturesque - lovely with the Christmas tree and snow at this time of year. Out of a postcard! So much historical significance to this spot.

    We wanted to visit this church but missed it as it was closed to be open later for Easter mass. It looked impressive from outside and is on my list for next time visit.

    The lower town has some restaurants and quite a few galleries. It "connects" with Petit Champlain to some extent so it could be part of the visit to the area. It was winter and not many things going on outdoors. The buildings are of course interesting for their age.

    So glad I made time to take the ferry to Levis and back. For $7.50 round trip, it's a fun and affordable way to see the city from a different vantage point. I did not get out and explore Levis, but in the summer it looks like there are some nice parks and areas to walk around there.

    Reading old reviews, it looks like the ferry used to run every half hour but currently it is every hour. The ferry from Quebec to Levis departs on the 30 and the ferry from Levis to Quebec departs on the 00. I recommend taking the 4:30pm ferry over and catching the 5:00pm back, if you are here in the winter because it coincides with the sunset. The actual ferry ride is about 15 minutes and you can't stay on the boat, you must disembark at Levis. So I just got off, waited in the terminal for 10-15 minutes and then walked back on.

    You can reserve a ticket online in advance but it wasn't near full when I went. I just showed up at the terminal a few minutes before and bought my ticket at the desk.

    At the terminal and on the ferry, there are vending machines in case you want a drink or a snack.

    It is a commuter ferry and when I went I think I was the only tourist (or at least, no one else was taking photos and most people chose to sit inside because it was cold!).

    Riding this ferry in the winter is a really unique experience because you can see and hear the ship makes its way across the chunks of ice on the river. There is nothing like it!

    We were delighted to take the tour of the residence of the Governor General. Our guide, Mary was extremely helpful, informative and knowledgeable. This may be the best value for chock full information, art and Canadian politics.

    We spent a few hours visiting on a rainy day. We enjoyed the Oh (Poop)! exhibit, learned about Québécois history, explored perspective, and learned about indigenous peoples. It was hands on and family friendly!

    The upper town definitely has a different feel from the lower old town where we stayed. It is where the Fairmont Hotel is located. Historic towns homes and churches with restaurants mixed in. You saw locals in the area which made it feel more real not just a tourist trap.

    Magnificent 19th century building by architect Eugene-Etienne Tache. You don't have to be able to name all the sculptures along side of front facade to fully appreciate this beautifully built historical mansion, just go and visit!

    The Funiculaire is a great alternative than going up and down a ton of stairs due to the massive incline. Keep in mind when we went in March the elevator was not working, so I did have to manage some stairs to even get to the Funiculaire. There are stairs to manage getting in and out of the entry point.

    It's also worth noting that the Funiculaire was closed for an hour and half over lunch which we weren't expecting, so you may want to factor this in if you have other stuff planned. It was freezing when we went, but we managed to find a small pub beside the Funiculaire which was open to have a drink and pizza while we waited to get back up the hill.

    When you're on the Funoculaire the view is incredible!

    As we went during March, there were no line ups. I suspect there would be huge lines in the summer so prepare for that.

    It's $4.00 Canadian for a one way ride and there's souvenir shops on either end with diverse range of items you can buy.

    Great exhibits of Quebec artists. One of the pavilions is in a former prison, a very interesting location.
