Many Canadians would say the heart of French culture is in Quebec City. The narrow streets of the old town – a Unesco World Heritage Site dating back to 1608 – are filled with museums, boutiques, restaurants and plenty of European charm. It’s the only fortified city in the Americas north of Mexico and its extremely walkable. On foot is by far the best way to enjoy all of Quebec City’s rich history – just remember when planning your route that there’s a large cliff separating the upper and lower towns.
