24 hours in Quebec City
If you have a short period of time to spend in Quebec City your main focus should be the Old City, the cradle of French America and a classified ‘world heritage site’ by UNESCO since 1985. It is the only fortified city north of Mexico, and we promise that you will fall in love with its stunning architecture and culture. Discover its winding streets, stroll in its beautiful parks and lovely boutiques, and taste the unique flavours of this amazing culinary destination. From a two- to a 30-minute walk from our property, you can enjoy a number of sights and attractions.
Before taking off to the Upper Town, drop your bags and start your visit in the Quartier Petit-Champlain, located just a few steps from the Auberge Saint-Antoine. Find the oldest merchant streets in Quebec with a line-up of local designer boutiques and handcrafts, decorations and gifts, as well as many charming restaurants. Then head up by the casse-cou stairs or the funicular, both linking the Lower and Upper Town.
When the Old City no longer holds any secrets for you, come back down via the Old Port, our neighborhood. Explore Saint-Paul Street, renowned for its antiquity dealers. Then, walk down Sault-au-Matelot, the street of art galleries, before heading back home to relax at Auberge Saint-Antoine.
You would like to deepen your historical knowledge? Why not take advantage of a walking tour, a bus tour, or a private driver guide to learn more? It would be our pleasure to introduce you to a personalized itinerary that will satisfy your curiosity and reach your personal interests.
You have more time on your hands?
After visiting the Old City, visit beautiful neighboring areas such as Montcalm, Saint-Jean-Baptiste & Nouvo St-Roch. Ready for more? The Montmorency Falls, the Orléans Island & Beaupré coast are all excellent for a half-day or a full-day excursion. Don't mind more time on the road? The Charlevoix region, an hour East of Quebec City, is a stunning destination for art and landscape lovers. Our team will be delighted to provide you with trip recommendations to ensure you make the most out of your journey.
