The station is Art Deco and worth going to see on its own. It has a range of eating places from snacks to fine dining. We were leaving Quebec City to go to Dorval to fly home. We still had not recovered from the revelation...More

Gare du Palais is the train station at the old port. It is exceptionally clean and quite for a terminal. The boarding was smooth and the train was on time.

It is unusual to find such a well appointed train station in Canada. Lots of choice of eateries to choose from. The architecture lends itself to the name of the station as it resembles a palace. The station also serves intercity buses.

A stunning piece of architecture! What a gorgeous place to wait for your train. The building is large, although the seating area has room for more chairs and benches. There are 2 or 3 restaurants, a small souvenir kiosk that carries a surprising amount of...More

We arrived into this station on VIA Rail. We walked around it a bit, taking in the architecture before catching a bus to our Airbnb in Limoilou
