Lévis Things to Do

  • Maison Alphonse-Desjardins

    The Maison Alphonse-Desjardins is one of the most interesting museums in the Quebec City area, and it's free! The house itself is quite interesting - built between 1882 and 1884, it is a fine example of Neo-Gothic architecture and "petit bourgeois" Victorian homes. It has been completely restored to give visitors an idea of what life was like in...

  • Notre-Dame-de-Levis Church

    The Parish of Levis was founded in 1850 and the same year the Notre-Dame-de-Levis Church was built following the plans of renowned architect Thomas Baillarge, who also designed the Quebec Basilica and about 100 other churches in the province of Quebec. This beautiful Neo-Classical style church was extended in 1854, and at that time it became the...

    Les Chocolats Favoris in Levis, Quebec

    by Jefie Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What's so special about an ice cream cone dipped in chocolate? Well you'll find out for sure if you go to Les Chocolats Favoris!! This chocolate/ice cream factory is actually one of the main reasons why people from Quebec City will take the ferry across the river to Levis on a warm, sunny day. Don't be surprised to see a huge line-up, that's how popular the place has become over the years! But trust me, it's worth the wait (and you usually don't have to wait that long anyway). A chocolate-dipped ice cream at Chocolats Favoris is like having the most delicious chocolate bar you've ever taster wrapped around your favorite ice cream flavor. It's so thick, some people like to eat the chocolate coating with a spoon! That'll definitely make up for the energy you've lost climbing up the hill from the ferry terminal :o)

    Favorite Dish: Orange-flavored ice cream dipped in dark chocolate, strawberry ice cream dipped in milk chocolate, vanilla.... I could go on forever!

Lévis Transportation

  • Start your journey on the ferry!

    Between Quebec City and Levis, the St. Lawrence River is only about 1 km wide, which makes for a short, pleasant ride (about 10 minutes) aboard one of the two ferries that make the run, the Lomer-Gouin and the Alphonse-Desjardins. During summer, there's a ferry that departs every 30 minutes during the day, and every 60 minutes in the evening (check...

  • Hop on board the shuttle to Old Levis

    If you're traveling with young children or elderly people, or if you simply can't bear the idea of climbing 135+ steps, you can buy a shuttle ticket ($1) at the ferry terminal. The shuttle will take you all the way to the top of the cliff, and it's also the best way to get to National Historic Site Fort-Levis if you're on foot. Shuttles run from...

  • Traverse Québec-Lévis

    I suggest you take the boat from Québec City to Levis, the cost is only 2 $ and the trip is very short but you have a very nice view with Chateau Frontenac and Vieux-Quebec in one side and Vieux-Lévis in the other.
