Picturesque Quebec City lies nestled on the banks of the Saint Lawerence River and is home to plenty of Francophile charm.

Canada’s largest French-speaking population lives here, injecting Parisian-like magic into much of the city’s architecture, food scene and fashion — making for one dreamy weekend getaway.

At more than 400 years old, one wouldn’t expect Quebec City to be so modern. Sprawled across two distinct levels dubbed Lower Town and Upper Town, the historic district of Old Quebec is surrounded by remnants of an old fort, earning it designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here you’ll find cobblestone streets and old stone buildings that have stood the test of time — some since the 1700s. Perhaps stay in one of these historic old buildings to get your fill of European architecture, without the expensive plane ticket.

With plenty to do in and around the city, chances are high you’ll never want to leave. From a downtown plush penthouse suite to a floating boat on a private lake, there are plenty of charming and unique airbnb options to choose from when it comes to visiting old-world Quebec City — or the epic countryside just outside of town.
