What makes a Quebec City getaway the perfect recipe for spring romance? It could be the language of love - French, being spoken all around you. 95% of Quebec City speaks French. Perhaps it's the city walls. 4.6 Kilometers of walls surround the 400-year-old city creating the appearance of European Castle filled with dashing knights and fair ladies. True, Quebec has all of these, things but so much more. Our visit to Quebec was so delicious; it could only be described as the perfect recipe for romance.
The Chateau Frontenac is not only the most photographed building in Quebec, but it's the most photographed hotel in the entire world. The Castle Frontenac opened in 1893, and for the last 125 years has been dazzling visitors with exquisite old-world architecture and top-notch service. The Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac pairs a multi-million dollar upgrade with classic styling and an ideal location into a scrumptious morsel that you can't wait to taste.
Another solid selection is the Auberge Saint-Antoine. Offering unparalleled luxury and the self-report most comfortable bed in Quebec, you might never leave your room. Should you venture out, the Auberge Saint-Antoine's central location on the banks of the St Lawerence River means you will not have to travel far to see the heart and soul of the city.
The cobblestone streets of Quebec beckoned us to meander. We lost track of time but found each other. We loved walking along the river and imagined getting a ferry to see the magnificent city from the water. We would have been remiss if we never climbed up to the Observatory. Observatoire de la Capitale is a viewing space on the 31st floor of the Marie-Guyart Building which is the city’s tallest skyscraper.
From here, had a 360′ view of the city. We could see the cobblestone streets we walked. We watched the mighty river stretching out to meet the sea. We could see everything Quebec offered and more promises of adventure in the countryside. We were simultaneously overcome with peace and the burning desire to go out and explore more. A breath, kiss, and long embrace then it was time to retire to our abode.
