This lovely hotel is in the Old Town is very close to the cruise ship port. Our spacious room was very well appointed. The restaurant served delicious meals. We will definately be back for a longer stay.

This is a lovely area to simply wander around, or stop to have a drink or a bite to eat - there's plenty of choice. Nearby is a great mural and some great photo opportunities for you to pop your heads through.

This is a great stop in a visit to the lower city. The preservation of the building really gives you a sense of just how old this part of the city is. It's definitely a must see.

The square contains three attractions – a temporary Louis XIV automated ‘snowglobe’, Notre Dame basilica and a huge mural which tells the history of Quebec. It is quaint and photogenic.

Welcome back, Louis the XIV, it has been about 350 years since your grace has graced the square. You were, after all, the father of "New France" (more or less) and in 1686, your bust was set in place. Congratulations, this "royal province" of yours...More

As many other reviews have stated this is a beautiful square and worth the time to visit. But, be aware the museum that was once here closed two years ago.

There is no Casino near old Quebec. There is a casino north of downtown but you have to cross the river to get there. It's quite a distance away.
