Quebec City, Canada
On 3 July 1608, Samuel de Champlain founded a settlement at Kébec, an Algonquin word meaning “place where the river narrows.” In doing so, he established what would become the first permanent French settlement in North America and one of the world’s most enchanting cities. The cradle of French civilization in America, Quebec City will be pulling out all the stops to celebrate its 400th anniversary in 2008. As the only fortified city north of Mexico, Quebec city has preserved and developed its rich heritage. Old Quebec has in fact been added to UNESCO’s prestigious list of World Heritage Sites in 1985.

Quebec City offers you a typical European ambience brimming with romance and joie-de-vivre where fine dining is an art in the purest of traditions. Also known as the gastronomic capital of North America, Old Quebec alone offers a breathtaking selection of more than 100 restaurants for all tastes and budgets.
