Camirand Photo/Québec City

Finding a great spot to take photos is not hard in Québec City. Thanks to the bluff-like Cap Diamant, photo ops along the Upper Town can't be beat. From the Citadelle to the Dufferin Terrace, there are dramatic views of the St. Lawrence River and its distant shoreline at seemingly every turn. On the way down to the Lower Town, the views from the Breakneck Steps are of the pedestrian-only rue du Petit-Champlain, the city's oldest street. Spewing fountains, statues and quaint Colonial architecture serve as memorable backgrounds for family photos. Take a riverboat ride for waterside shots of the city, where the foremost landmark, the iconic hotel Le Château Frontenac, reigns among the most popular photo backdrops. Here are our suggestions for the best photo ops in Quebec City.
