Rail Europe quebec

If you are a keen history buff and love France, you're really going to love Quebec City; Perched on top a cliff, Québec City is the only walled city on the continent north of Mexico.

Narrow cobbled streets are lined with 17th and 18th century houses and almost every step will bring you to another historical plaque marking the battles between the French and British Empires for this symbolic piece of land, or a statue representing the French colonists' subsequent struggle for survival in English-speaking North America.

Any time of year is good time to visit Quebec City. Summer draws in hundreds of tourists, creating a fascinating street life and a buzz wherever you go. Everyone from musicians to acrobats to actors in period costume take to the streets to entertain the crowds. There are some terrific, museum exhibitions and tours.

Autumn and spring bring beautiful colors, dramatically reduced prices and thinner crowds. And in the winter, Caribou, an alcoholic drink enjoyed by the early settlers, is sold everywhere to keep people warmed up. Even in the darkest and coldest months of January and February, Quebecers have found a way to have fun: throwing the annual Winter Carnival, one of the biggest and most colorful and most successful winter festivals in the world.
