Day 10

Today we visited the Lower City, the basse-ville. Walked a little out of the way trying to find the road that we had climbed up last time, but eventually got there and toured through the Museum of Civilization. Lots of exhibits there about Québec and the culture and history. Walked through the Petit-Champlain area of the lower city as well. We were going to take the “funiculaire” elevator back up, but the line was amazingly long, so we ended up walking up on stairs. Walked through the archeological site of the Château Saint-Louis ruins before heading back to the hotel for a while.
Went out for dinner at a little restaurant a bit later, and then walked through the upper city at night. Amazing views of the Château Frontenac lit up by lights. ^_^
