We really enjoyed the bistros, shops and restaurants in the old section...Definitely worth it! We found that the little bistros on the bottom section where less hot in the summer, a nice breeze comes from the St-Laurence...enjoy!
The old city of Quebec is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been and we’ve traveled a lot. The architecture is simply breathtaking. Unfortunately this part of the city was crowded with masses of tourists. So I would suggest that visiting Quebec City...More
Old Quebec is one of the most charming, quaint, and relaxing places to visit. From the old architecture, french cuisine, cobble stones streets, and friendly people, it is a must place to vacation. Highly recommended.
Old Quebec is a small-ish part of Quebec City that is divided into the upper part and the lower part. Be warned, though... the upper and lowers parts are divided by quite a steep cliff. There are two ways to get between the two: walking...More
The charm, beauty and culture of this city is not to be missed. The people are warm and friendly, the food is a delight and the streets at night are to what every city should aspire. I was completely taken with Old Quebec and hope...More

Hello Canada Traveler,
I strongly recommend the train to or from Toronto, Montreal or Quebec City. These cities are relatively close and the train is a great way to see the countryside.The airports are not near the central city and the VIA Rail is very comfortable and convenient with access near the downtown. We used the Business Class option with was very comfortable and the service was excellent. Depending upon the time of day of your travel hot meals are provided, snacks and a wide variety of beverages alcoholic and non alcoholic. Business Class is well worth the upgrade fees.
We found that VIA Rail was efficient, on time and very accommodating. I have no complaints about the rail service at all. With Business Class you also avail yourself of early boarding, no wait lines and more service attendants and better service than you get in First Class Air Travel. Traveling by rail also enables you to relax, read, view, or even nap without interruption. WiFi is also provided free of charge if you want to work or catch up on e-mails.
Whether you are boarding or disembarking you are in a convenient location train station where it is easy to catch a cab to a hotel, dining or sightseeing. This is particularly true for Montreal and Quebec City. I am not as familiar with Toronto. So my advise is to skip the airplane and jump on the train its fast, comfortable and has great service. Did I mention that you are not "crammed" into a seat. VIA Rail is a service which I will use again. Look for their web page under viarail.
