Timing in Upper Town
Plan to spend a whole day visiting the many sights and shops clustered around the Château Frontenac. Rue St-Jean offers plenty of lunch options. Or do as the locals do: grab a sandwich and head to a bench in one of the area's lovely parks.
Mark out at least a half-day for walking the walls of La Citadelle—set out early in the morning to catch the Changing of the Guard at 10 am in summer. Afterward, picnic on the Plains, or try one of the many terraces on the Grande Allée and avenue Cartier.
