As one of the most picturesque and historic cities in North America, Québec City, with its European charm and stunning architecture, is brimming with Instagrammable places for conference and convention attendees. Here are some of Québec City’s most iconic spots to get the best Instagram shots for event attendees.
1. Anywhere in and around the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac
The Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, a majestic castle overlooking the St. Lawrence River, is, some say, one of the most photographed hotels in the world. From its stately interior and how it towers over Dufferin Terrace and Quartier Petit Champlain to the sweeping views of the hotel from Pierre-Dugua-de Mons Terrace, there are limitless angles to get an Instagram-worthy pic! Make sure you stop by the hotel’s Bistro Le Sam restaurant, with its awe-inspiring vistas and décor.
2. The cobblestone streets of Quartier Petit Champlain and Place Royale
Event attendees can immerse themselves in over 400 years of history surrounding Place Royale. Quartier Petit Champlain, one of the oldest commercial streets in North America, is a postcard-perfect place throughout every season.
3. A stroll through Québec City’s Lower Town
Hardcore IGers looking for hidden gems in Québec City should turn to the hidden streets in the city’s Lower Town, such as Rue Sous-le-Cap, Rue Saint-Paul, and Rue Christie. While event attendees are there, they should head to Gare du Palais, one of Québec City’s train and bus stations. Its two-story châteausque design is similar to the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac!
