Very nice. Quebec City is the perfect place to be in the summer: you get a old historic and vibrant city and you get the beaches (even one with palm trees), mountains, canyons, waterfalls, little towns full of history and the sea and maritime feel not too far. I really gotta go next summer.

These were great to view. I don't often get to see many photos of Quebec City and never from this vantage point.

Nice shots. I really like how dense and compact the Old Town looks. As well, I didn't even know that Quebec City had a waterfall!

Cool pics! But surprised to see so many outdoor pools in such a freezing cold city. (The warm summer being very short)
