Explore the Old Port and Old Québec
ATTRACTIONS NEAR HÔTEL 71
Founded in 1608, Québec City is the only city in North America that has preserved its ramparts, which still surround Old Québec. In fact, the Historic District of Old Québec was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today, the area certainly doesn’t want for tourist attractions.
Stay in the Old Port and take a step back in history as you stroll along the streets near the hotel. Gourmet restaurants, bistros, museums, side-walk cafés, interpretation centres, artistic alleys and historical walking tours—don’t miss out on the chance to experience the city’s European charm.
LE MUSÉE DE LA CIVILISATION
The Musée de la Civilisation, just across the street from Hôtel 71, hosts a variety of fascinating exhibits brought to life through workshops and interactive elements. A great time is guaranteed, rain or shine.
Snow or shine, you’ll find plenty to enjoy in this neighborhood: restaurants, boutiques and art galleries are all on offer in Petit Champlain. Time will fly as you stroll through the pedestrian streets.
Place-Royale is one of Old Québec’s must-see attractions, located a stone’s throw away from the hotel, in the Historic District of Old Québec. Place-Royale is one of the oldest French-built sites in North America.
ART GALLERIES AND ANTIQUE SHOPS
As you walk along Sault-au-Matelot and Saint-Paul streets, you will find any number of charming antique stores and art galleries, as well as restaurants, cafés and patios where you can rest your weary feet after a day of sightseeing.
OLD PORT & PLACE DES CANOTIERS
Place des Canotiers and the Old Port of Québec are perfect spots to spend time with family or friends! Make sure to visit Gare du Palais, the Agora of the Old Port and the Musée Maritime.
QUÉBEC, A PORT CITY
Enjoy a day—or a few hours—out on the water. Board the AML Louis Jolliet for a dinner cruise, or see the city from a different angle on the Québec City – Lévis Ferry.
Set off to explore Old Québec, a UNESCO World Heritage site. There’s something for everyone, whether you prefer to board a classic red bus, take a private tour or sign up for the famous Food Tour, or—for the braver souls—a ghost tour.
