Quebec City

The charming narrow streets of the old city are best seen on foot, especially since most of the historic sights are located within a small area of the walled city. If you need to travel farther to see one of the more distant sights such as the Mussée du Québec, the bus system is frequent and reliable. Fare are cheaper if you buy a ticket before boarding and are on sale at several outlets in grocery stores and supermarkets. There are also oneday passes for Can$4.60. The bus station is in the Lower Town on Boulevard Charest Est. Most of the main routes stop centrally on the Place d'Youville in the Old Town.

Taxi stands are located in front of the major hotels or outside city hall. House-drawn carriages or calèches may be hired for a gentle trot around the Old Town, but expect to pay Can$50 for 40 minutes.
