It's a must do in Quebec. Even if you try to avoid it, you'll end up there walking around the old town. Great views of the river, the chateau and the occasional busker, it's worth spending a bit of time soaking it all in.

Such a huge boardwalk and the views of Levis off to the south and down onto the Lower Town are superb. In May there was hardly anyone about in the evening and a great place to stroll.
