August 2002, Québec City and Montréal, Canada

The last week of August 2002 we visited Québec City and Montréal. We were fortunate to have lovely weather all week, great for spending many hours walking the streets. 

We found old Québec City to be charming and romantic, a perfect spot for a cozy weekend get-away (if one were to live within easy traveling distance). 

The best word for Montréal is lively:  performing arts of all kinds (theater, movies, photography, music) were easy to find around any corner, and at all times of day and night the sidewalks were teeming. It is also a city of contrasts, with historic churches and parks surrounded by attractive modern skyscrapers. Remarkably, we were also offered more unsolicited help from strangers in Montréal than in any other city we've visited.

Finally, both cities offered wonderful food: we probably ate better on this trip than we had on any other, including our visits to Paris.
