Weatherman promised good weather today..what does he know?
Anyway we took the ferry over to the city and up the funicular to the tourist information center to book a bus tour for tomorrow that takes us around the city and to the Montmorency Falls. We then did the underground tour of the St Louis Forts and Chateaux beneath the Dufferin Terrace.
|Bottom Wall of Frontenac Restaurant|
|Interesting about the Latrine|
For over 200 years this was the seat of power for the French and British consisting of 4 forts and 2 Chateaux spanning from 1648 to 1834.
In 1834 a fire destroyed the Chateau. The Hotel Frontenac is adjacent to the site. For more info go to http://www.pc.gc.ca
We then walked to view the Petit Champlain fresco which tells of the origins of the Cap-Blanc district as a port and community showing the lives of the people who lived here.
A thunderstorm was brewing so we ducked into a Cafe le D Orsay for lunch just in time as the rain came down in torrents.

We then stopped for some gelato before taking the ferry back to Levis.
We find taking the ferry easier than driving, finding a place to park etc.
