Quebec is lovely. I was there back in 2001 for their winter carnival and after having been in Canada for a few months it was such a surreal sensation arriving in the old city. It suddenly felt as though I had stepped outside of North America and was back in Europe.

Narrow streets, architecture reminiscent of Europe and people speaking French!

It really is a beautiful city. Did you get down by Chateau Frontenac at all? Lovely walkway down there. Probably a bit nicer when you visited though, my camera was having a hard time of it in -40 degrees. So many fantastic little streets and alleyways, wish I was back there.
