If you love Canada, its history and incredible scenery, then you'll love taking this virtual walking tour through different sections of Quebec City:


The first part of your 61 minute Quebec City Virtual Walk begins at the Fontaine de Tourny, in front of Quebec's Parliament Building. Soon you pass through the massive stone fortification wall and enter Vieux-Québec (Old Quebec). The buildings and other structures along the street are reminiscent of Paris. As you continue down Rue Saint Louis, you pass numerous restaurants before, turning down Tresor Street and enter a small park with an ornate Gothic fountain. Crossing the Rue Saint Louis, you enter the grounds of the famous Chateau Frontenac, bustling with activity.

Then on through another small park, the Governor's Garden. Next your walk heads downhill towards the St. Lawrence River and onto Quebec's famous Dufferin Terrace and Promenade des Gouverneurs boardwalk, with its views of the St. Lawrence and Chateau Frontenac in the distance. When the boardwalk ends, you turn and enter an area populated with outdoor cafes. Proceeding forward, you pass through a side street with artwork displayed for sale. Next you enter Montmorency Park, with its commanding view of the St. Lawrence. Then down some stairs before a brief walk past the shops on the Cote de la Montagne and then, mais oui, even more stairs to descend!

Finally you descend down to Lower Quebec, and the quaint Rue du Petit-Champlain. Without doubt, Rue du Petit-Champlain is one of the most charming and colorful streets in the world, lined with shops and boutiques, this little cobblestone street is a gem! At the end of Rue du Petit-Champlain, you turn and head north on Boulevard Champlain - also lined with one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants. After a short walk you turn onto the appropriately named yet charming Rue du Cul de Sac.

Leaving Lower Town, you move to the Plains of Abraham, where British troops under General James Wolfe defeated the French General Louis-Joseph de Montcalm on September 13, 1759. Today the historic battlefield is a quiet park with beautiful vistas and scenic views of the St. Lawrence plus beautiful hardscaping and hills with even more scenic views of the river. Turning back towards the city, your walk continues through a well manicured landscape. As you leave the peaceful Plains of Abraham, you cross a busy street and approach another historic city landmark, Quebec's Parliament Building. You pass by the front of Parliament Building, with its statues of famous Canadians, and, after crossing the square in front of Parliament Building, your 61 minute walk ends at its starting point, the beautiful Fontaine de Tourny.
