Québec City and Montréal are two of Canada’s most appealing, as well as largest, cities. Gracious Québec City was founded in the 17th century, and its charming streets remain lined with magnificent 17th and 18th century houses. It’s little wonder that the entire city is a World Heritage Site. You’ll need to remind yourself that you are in North America as you wander around the atmospheric Old Town; don’t miss the Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica, Place Royal, the Old Port, Parliament Hill and the fortifications. Visit Québec City at any time of year, but, if you do go in the winter months, how about staying in the Ice Hotel Québec, just a few minutes from the city itself? In comparison, Montréal couldn’t be more different, it’s a thriving, sparkling and cosmopolitan city, with a foodie’s paradise of restaurants and fantastic nightlife. Whilst you can enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides over the cobbles of Old Montréal and sites such as the Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica, downtown has a state-of-the-art underground city, a 28-mile network of shops and hotels. Other cities, such as Gatineau, Trois-Riviéres, Sagueney and Sherbrooke, each offer their own unique take on urban life.
