We stayed in the Old part of Quebec city, within the ramparts, but the really really quaint cobblestone old part is down by the water, the old port. It's unfortunately got quite a few souvenir shops (and stores excluseively selling maple syrup. I always thought that was quite a thing to base an entire career and business around.) but there's also a fair share of restaurants, including where we stopped for lunch (which I'll get into next week some time). Anyhow, everthing is beautiful to begin with, and then there was some fall decoration and changing colours, and thus my camera was plastered to my face.
One of the highlights of the old port is the view of the Chateau Frontenac, looming above. It's such a beautiful building! There's also this little lift you can take up the side of the hill from the port, to get to the chateau.
