Quebec City - Quebec

The architectural beauty on every European style street compliments the rich history and culture in Quebec City. There is a very strong old-world charm about the city and unlike French Quarters in many cities around the world; the picture is complete in Quebec City with complete French saturation. French is the first and official language here and it is recommended that you at least attempt to speak some French.

The entire old section of the city located between the Citadelle and the Marina has been designated as a UN World Heritage Site. Tourists visit Quebec City all year around and during the summer the streets can be particularly busy. The city is also host to the Quebec Winter Carnival or Winterlude in February which is the largest winter Carnival. Not to be missed but make sure you dress up warm. The streets can be filled with mountains of snow and the wind coming off the St Lawrence can be freezing. Temperatures of -30 Celsius are not rare during January and February.
