We took the Funiculaire down AND up. . .walking the steps didn't seem like the way to go. The ride is $3.00 one way and, although short, was well worth it for the view of the lower city.

Trust me, after climbing up and down for a couple of days, pay the $3 CAD, and use the funicular. It’s apart of history, and very helpful. Functional, and very safe.

So we used the funicular to ride back up the first time we went down to lower town. $3 person isn't bad. But I can't say the views are anything better than what you see from the top. There was not a line when we took it. But I just didn't see spending the money again the second time. We just walked the steps and did fine.

It's a quick ride up or down between the lower and upper parts of Québec. $3 each way. The lines move prettly quickly. Nice view of the lower town.

In June 2018 the price for one way was 3CAD. This way of getting from upper to lower Old Quebec saves time, energy, and gives you a great view.
