We found some great camping across the St. Lawrence from Quebec City in the town of Levis. Levis has a ferry that crosses the river every half hour and brings you directly to the heart of of Vieux Quebec. Very handy, but we couldn't get from our campsite to the ferry by taxi (they didn't have a minivan!) So the first night that we went to city, we drove the motorhome. I highly recommended that Jules stay far away from the small narrow streets of Vieux Quebec after the last incident in Montreal. We did find some parking and we made our way to a Cirque du Soleil performance. Mercedes had read about this free show put on nightly at 9:30 under a grouping of overpasses (freeways)
The following day we prepared to be out the entire day. Instead of driving into the city again - we took the 7.5 km biking trail in Levis down to the "Traversiers" dock, took the ferry across (with bikes) to Vieux Quebec. We biked around for a little while once we were in Quebec, then parked them for the day. There has been many changes to the waterfront since the last time I was there, but the rest of the inside of the fortifications hasn't changed much and just as spectacular as ever. I will recommend "le petit cochon" for anyone in Vieux Quebec looking for a great lunch. Bakery/Deli - great food and great prices. This town really is incredible, a little piece of Europe but filled with it's own history and the establishment of our country! Never enough time to see all that we want to see - still we were pretty tired at the end of the day and realized that we still had to take the ferry back, followed by another 7.5 km bike ride back to the campsite. I don't know how Celina and Chanel keep up - but they do!
From here on out - neither Jules nor I have ever been this far east and we all eagerly await new discoveries!
