This is one of the most scenic and famed cities in Canada. With lots of snow there, it seemed more romantic and suitable for couples, families to go.

You can get down to the lower town from the Dufferin Terrace either by a very steep stairway or by the funicular. Either way it is a great place to visit, filled with all sorts of shops and galleries. Very charming and very quaint. Take the funicular back up to make it easy.

Although I love Old Quebec... taking the stairs or elevator down to this area returns you to some Normalcy. Cute area to discover.

We loved our tour of the lower town. Very interesting. They were setting up for Halloween and all the decorations were fantastic. They paint fantastic murals on the side of buildings here as well.
