The promenade takes you from Dufferin terrace all the way to the back of the Citadel. It is a long walk, so make sure you have comfortable shoes. I liked that is full of wildlife: we saw many birds, squirrels and even a small snake.

Well maintained, is bears the name of the 'gouverneurs' who used to have their walk here.

Great views over the water and Lower town in the distance.

Wow, it says there are 310 steps, but it didn’t say that most of them are up and down and this is just the actual physical steps.
We didn’t count but it must have been well into 4 figures overall so not for the unfit.
The path was up and down, mainly up, beneath the walls of the Citadelle, right to the Plains of Abraham at the top.
Probably great views from there but it was misty.

There are some great views on this walk, we found it good exercise as well with the steps and would recommend it in early evening or morning, just the job.

This is a beautiful well kept boardwalk with extraordinary views of the St Lawrence. There are sturdy staircases for each level. It was well cleared of snow and an easy walk. The top level would be a great place for a picnic in warmer weather.

This a beautiful walk from the Fairmont hotel up to the Plains of Abrahams. You join the runners or take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the spectacular view across the St Lawrence river.

In the summer, it's best to do this walk in the morning before it's too hot.

The governors promenade passes some beautiful areas. In some areas it is flat and wide, and in some other areas there are staircases to continue the journey. It stretches all the way to the Plains of Abraham in one direction and all the way to the port (and Dufferin Terrace) in the other direction. On the side that’s facing the port, it’s ripe with photo opportunities. Lots of little benches are scattered around so you can take a rest. Absolutely worth going!

Magnificent views of St Lawrence Seaway, The boardwalk is very long and wide, and you can get to the Fort on one end, and take the funicula down from the other end.
