Can anyone tell me what are the highlights in Quebec for a city walk?
A Quebec City walk would be so short that everything would be a highlight. Really, it's tiny. But here are a few things to look out for:
The cafes and restaurants of Grande Allée
The Assemblée Nationale (Quebec parliament)
Plans of Abraham
Quebec City citadel
St. Louis and St. Paul streets
The funicular and the lower city
The museum of civilization
Make sure you see the boardwalk that goes from the south tip of the citadel to the Chateau Frontenac. If you still have time, check out the St. Roch district. about 7 years ago
You can't go wrong with walking the city. Walk the ramparts of the fort along the river to begin and then stroll into the old part of town. The bars and restaurants are superb. I would also recommend the excellent beer pubs along the route, for watching the locals.
The previous post covers all the specific spots in the city, obviously a friendly local of which I have found many. over 6 years ago
