Travellers taking cheap flights to Quebec City will be charmed by its idyllic setting on the St. Lawrence River, its rich and stirring history, its architectural heritage, and, its residents' way of life. Quebec City has a joie de vivre; good food, good wine and good company are top priorities.
The Upper Town is home to the Citadelle and the imposing Château Frontenac. Its medieval-style gables and turrets add a touch of fairytale to the city. The Plains of Abraham, where the British wrested Quebec from the French in 1759, are a short walk away. Stay in this era for a while by viewing some 18th-century paintings in the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec.
Climb down the casse-cou ("neck-breaking" steps) or take the funicular to the Lower Town, the oldest part of Old Québec. The streets are buzzy and lively with galleries, craft boutiques, restaurants and bistros. The Musée de la Civilisation is here and the Old Port area is wonderful for a stroll or for hopping onto a summertime cruise of the St. Lawrence.
It is wintertime when Quebec City really shines. This twinkling wonderland hosts winter sports, the world-famous Carnaval and a beautiful but temporary ice hotel.
