A week in Montréal and Québec City is to discover more than 400 years of history and a thriving culture.

These two major cities are easily accessible to the physically disabled, because they boast a multitude of adapted, Kéroul-certified tourist establishments. Here, we live by the rhythm of the seasons, but of course it’s easier in the summer if you’re not used to snow!

So as not to forget where the city was founded, a museum was built—right where Montréal was born. You can see the archaeological remains of the thousand-year-old presence of the First Nations. On the top floor, a superb restaurant overlooks the Old Port and the islands.

The Old Port: a playground for the whole family

The Old Port on the St. Lawrence River features a beautiful boardwalk leading to the Clock Tower Quay, Bonsecours Island, the Grande roue ferris wheel, Jacques-Cartier Quay, the Science Centre and the cruise ships in port. Enjoy!

Cruise on the St. Lawrence River

You’ll get one of the best views of Montréal by taking a cruise or boat tour leaving from the Old Port. A wide choice of packages is available: brunch, panoramic, dinner-show, dancing... What better way to discover the city!

Day 5

From Montréal to Parliament Hill in Québec City
