After a few days in Montreal, my husband and I took a 3 hour train ride east to Quebec City. This is my 2nd time in Quebec City. It is pretty small and we explored a lot of it the last time we were here. So this time, we decided to take it easy and enjoy all of Old Quebec. This is a neighbourhood that was historically a military fort back in the 17th century, so we are quite high up from the rest of the city (photo 1).
In the upper part of Old Quebec, you will find grand hotels, like the Chateau Frontenac (top right) or charming little hotels like the photo at the bottom right. Everywhere you go though, you see historic buildings that have been converted into restaurants, retail shops, hotels and museums.
There’s an area at the upper part of Old Quebec where there are old buildings converted into residences. As I’m walking around this area, seeing these wonderful stone and brick buildings, I wondered what it was like to live here in the 19th century or earlier.
There are some units in the area for rent. One of the things I would like to do when I retire (not anytime soon though) is to stay in one of these buildings for maybe a month or so and explore and enjoy more of Quebec City.
