One of the absolute best times to visit Québec is in the Fall, when everything is bathed in brilliant sunshine, and all the glory that is autumn. The colours are spectacular, but hey, don’t take my word for it, come and see for yourself.
There’s something magical about wandering around the refurbished port—and spotting the odd cruise ship in for the season’s magnificent colour show—and then ambling into the heritage section of Vieux Québec (Old Québec) and along the Petit Champlain with its cobbled street, colourful shop fronts, and enticing wares. You cannot fail to feel like you’ve been transported to another realm. Especially whenever you look up, you see the skyline is dominated by the magnificent Chateau Frontenac, reputed to be one of the most photographed buildings on the planet … and you can see why!
Come for the ambiance and colour, stay for the charm that is Québec.
