Where we stayed was outside of the walls, so we had to pass through the gates a few times a day to see the Upper City. The experience of just seeing the gates never gets boring. A great part of the City's charm.

There's a lot of construction going on in Quebec. But you can walk a long way along the parapet. There are many opportunities to look out over the harbor and the beautiful fall colors at this time of year. You will see lots of cannons.

Stumbled across this on the way to something else. $3.90 each and was way more interesting than the Museum of Civilization. Great staff to help you understand what the significance of the area is all about. Indeed a little jewel in the city.

We did not walk much of this, as we only have a Short time in QC, but it was neat to walk on some history. You do not have to see a ton of this to appreciate it.

There is a funicular that runs from the lower town to the upper town that drops you right at the foot of the Chateau Frontenac. From there it’s maybe a 15 minute walk to the fortifications. It’s an easy walk.
