Walking along the walls of this ancient city is a great idea, but don’t forget to wear appropriate footwear. It can be pretty slippery on the walls, especially in the winter months!

There's something fascinating about walking the length of this wall surrounding the city. Perhaps it's the wonderful view that it offers of passersby on top of St. John's Gate or the panoramic views of Lower Town, but the sense of history as the only remaining fortified city in North America certainly doesn't hurt either. Whether you take a guided tour or walk it alone, the Fortifications of Quebec is a must see!
