As you stroll the cobblestone streets and take in the charming 400-year-old architecture, you’ll forget that you haven’t left the continent. Voted the 5th best city in the world by Conde Nast Traveler in 2022, Quebec City offers grandeur, history and an authentic blend of French, British and indigenous North American flavors.
