At a Glance

Together with a supportive group of women, discover the best of Québec City as locals introduce you to the food, arts and history of this fascinating region. Alongside expert historians, wind your way through quiet residential neighborhoods and worn cobblestone streets as you study the architecture of one of North America’s oldest settlements. A visit to Musée National des Beaux Arts reveals paintings and sculptures by Québecois artists and a culinary walk through the food district introduces many flavors that inspire the city’s locavore movement. On this special women’s-only program, lectures come to life with field trips encompassing both landmark sites and less heralded aspects of the city, shining light on the cultural fabric of Québec City that few visitors get to unravel.
