It's Definitely worth the $3.00 CAD price to save climbing all the steps and you also save some time that can be used to see more of Old Quebec. nice views too!!

The original wooden funicular has been modernised. It is a short trip at a 45 degree angle and costs $3.

It's well worth the few dollars to save time and effort to get to Petit Champlain and/or the lower city. Handicapped folks and families with strollers or small children will really appreciate the easy travel.

For our stay, we parked in a parking garage and walked everywhere. This garage would be about 2 blocks away from the top side of the funicular, on the other side of the Hotel Frontenac. Not sure if there are others closer... More
