This year how about visiting a city that’s rich in history with a unique culture like no other. Quebec is a distinct, humble province with strong historical French influences. First time visitors will be astonished at the mesmerising sights of pristine tree-lined cobbled streets amid houses of stunning architectural features.
Quebec is a cultural melting pot of Canadian, French and British influences representative of Quebec’s past dating back to the 17th and 18th century. There are many great landmarks to see in Quebec, so make sure you plan ahead. Citadelle of Quebec is a National Historical Site of Canada; it is a fortress within Old Quebec and receives over 200,000 visitors each year. Another must-see is the Cathedral Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec, a visually stunning attraction that opens its doors to visitors daily.
If you wish for a true fairytale experience, relax and recuperate at Fair Le Chateau Frontenac – this hotel is a charmingly beautiful resort displaying stunning hilltop views of the city. If you fancy an alternative, stay wrapped up warm when visiting Hotel de Glace – a unique cathedral made entirely of ice and snow; complete with 44 rooms and themed suites.
There’s no surprise that Quebec has a delightfully multicultural cuisine. Try Poutine, a heavenly pile of chips smothered in gravy and cheese curds – so good even America have copied! As the second largest francophone city in the world, you may not be too shocked to hear Quebecer’s have a love affair with cheese as well as plenty of smoked deli-style meats.
Quebec is ideal for families and couples seeking a unique trip. It's also home to the most welcoming locals. Spend your afternoons visiting the local amenities whilst interacting with the eclectic on-street entertainment. Visiting in winter? You’re certainly in for a treat; Quebec is host to the most spectacular Winter Carnival.
