car during the carnival?

by mayasmin

Do I need to rent a car during the carnival? We're also hoping to visit the Ice Hotel. If we don't need a car, is there a convenient location in quebec city where we should stay? (Haven't visited Quebec yet so I'm unfamiliar with the city's layout). We're arriving at YQB (Quebec's airport).Thanks much in advance!

Re: car during the carnival?

by Jefie

Hi! You don't really need a car as most Carnaval attractions are located within easy walking distance, in the Old City area. The Old City would be a great place to stay, but it gets pretty expensive during Carnaval. A cheaper but still convenient option would be to stay in the Sainte-Foy area (look for hotels located on Boulevard Laurier) and take the bus to the Old City (which is much cheaper than having to pay for parking, and it's a quick 15-min ride).

From YQB, if you decide not to rent a car, your only option is to take a taxi to your hotel (it should cost about $25-$35, depending on where you're staying). For the ice hotel, there are shuttles available from downtown Quebec City. Hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions!

Yeah, just walk everywhere. I usually stay at the Belley:

And then just spend the rest of my holiday walking.

Travel Tips for Quebec

Martello Towers

by johngayton

This made for an interesting little piece of research when it came to building this page. A Martello Tower is basically a mini-fortress used extensively on the Mediterranean shores as a means of combatting piracy and providing harbour defences. Around the turn of the 18th-19th centuries the British adopted the idea and built several on the UK coast as part of the defence against the French.

As part of the British refortification of Quebec four towers were built, between 1808 and 1812, overlooking the St Lawrence River in response to the then threat from America. The design of the towers is very simple. They are built with three storeys and the only entrance is on the upper level, thus allowing the defenders to pull up the ladder and render the doorway inaccesible. The platform at the top was designed to house an artillery piece whilst small gunports allowed for rifle fire.

A typical garrison would have consisted of 20 men and an officer who would spend tours of a month based in the tower with all the provisions necessary to be self-sufficient. An interesting design feature is that the building has very thick western-facing walls whilst those facing the city had much thinner stonework. The reason for this was that attacks were expected from the west but should the tower be captured the thinner eastern walls would be easy to destroy by the city's artillery.

By 1820 the Americans were no longer a threat without the towers getting a chance to prove themselves. Tower #3 was demolished in in 1905 whilst the others have been restored by the National Battlefield Commission. The Plains of Abraham towers, #1 and #2, are now used as exhibition spaces.

Drive the rugged north coast...

by noahsdad

Drive the rugged north coast of the Gaspe peninsula. It's breathtaking, the views are spectacular, and you'll find warm hospitality in the towns nestled in the little coves along the way. Tobogganing on the Promenade in front of the Chateau Frontenac in 20-degree F weather! (That was a heat wave!)

Free Tour?

by jamiesno

This is a horribly frugal tip to be putting up on VT but there are plenty of budget travellers out there so I am putting it on, LOL.

While I was exploring Place Royal I was over come by dozens of tourist on a walking tour complete with a very loud tour guide.

Before I knew it I was in the middle of them and getting a free interpretation of Place Royal.

I couldn't help but think how easy that it was to do that and thought I would pass it along, hehehe.

I guess there is nothing wrong with listening to someone else's tour is it?

There are not as many people...

by Paula1971

There are not as many people in Quebec that speak English as you would think. You would be advised to take a phrase book with you. Better yet, bring someone who speaks French... The people in Quebec have a reputation for being rude. They are no more rude in Quebec than they are anywhere else I've been.

Packing List

by bbeltkd

bring a normal suitcase, and a large purse/bag that you can take with you around the city. This will give you somewhere to put your purchases and money and other stuff. SNEAKERS!!! Quebec City is kind of hilly and you will probably end up walking a lot. The summers are cool, but shorts are ok. Be sure to bring a water proof jacket...it was kind of rainy/misty when I went in July.
