... to Blake and I and started explaining to us that it was 'muffler shisha' so we were smoking shisha from the cars. No tabacco or nicotine - apparently there was hash in one of them but he wouldn't say which haha. We tried a few different flavours killing time until the station 4 show finished and we got a spot to watch from.
The final station was some what of a circus type acrobatics theatre show. Very entertaining and pretty impressive. I think the idea of the show was that ...
... region up until that battle in 1759. The battle was the culmination of a three month British siege of the city and involved 10,000 troops. The battle lasted 15 minutes and saw the leaders of both sides mortally wounded! It was the beginning of the end for the French in North America and within four years the remaining French owned enclaves were ceded to the British in the Treaty of Paris.
A quick word on our apartment’s location, it’s ...
... retook its former name, place du Marche. By 1950, one of the oldest districts in North America had become poor and rundown. But Place Royale's fortunes would soon change. In the 1960s, efforts were undertaken to rehabilitate this part of the Old City, whose narrow streets and architecture reflect four centuries of history.
On the border of the square, built in 1688, Eglise Notre-Dame-des-Victoires is one of the oldest ...
... definitely worthwhile
We also visited the Citadel which is located on a hill overlooking the city. Although it has historical significance and parts of it are dedicated displays, the fortress is still an active military base. The views from the Citadel over the old city and the St Lawrence River are excellent and not to be missed.
... now my plans to do another semester in Montreal have been scrapped and I'm applying to do a semester either in Ireland or Sweden from January to June next year. It'll be close to a lot of my friends and I can do some more travel at the end of that around Europe. Hopefully going to rail around Europe with Stephen and catch up with Felix in Munich, my bro Max in Paris, Cynthia in Geneva and possibly ferry over to Algiers for a bit with Yasmine. Exciting times are ahead!

Historical Traveler Reviews Auberge Aux Deux Lions Quebec City
Great place - very spacious
I stayed at Au Deux Lions for four nights in the Vieux Quebec suite and it was delightful. There were lots of great restaurants nearby, the suite was bigger than many entire apartments and Jean-Francois the host was always good-humoured and helpful. I thought that it was a great deal for the level of luxury. Run don't walk!
Notre séjour chez Jean-François Dulac du Gite aux deux Lions a été très agréable. Le propriétaire fait de son mieux pour vous rendre service. Les deux chambres ou nous avons dormi sont vraiment très belles, propres et spacieuses. Le petit déjeuner est copieux et varié.
Une adresse à conseiller
The owner is very personable and eager to make you feel welcome. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was good. We will definitely be visiting this B&B again.
Although this B&B is not located within the walls, it is close to everything. Frankly, it is nice not be in the thick of it all because it forces you to explore the City. My girlfriend and I loved to walk down Rue St. Jean, as the street has bakeries, an amazing chocolate shop, many restaurants and funky shops.
We stayed at Aux Deux Lions during the very busy weekend of the "Festival de la Nouvelle France", and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house is immaculate yet welcoming, newly renovated, and very clean. The rooms are private and quiet. There is a nice deck where you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch people walking along Rene-Levesque.
My wife and I recently stayed for two evenings at the Deux Lions B& B in Quebec City. We wanted to be close to the old city so that we could walk everywhere. This B&B is very close. It was very clean and the service was great. Very good atmosphere together with very good accomodations. We certainly reccomend this place.

When booking a room via an internet search, without any personal recommendation, there is always a risk that it won't be as good as its advertising makes it seem. What a treat to have our stay at Aux Deux Lions even better that expected.
This B&B is a perfect compliment to the beauty of Quebec!!
My wife and I recently stayed here. We were extremely pleased with our accommodation in this B&B, we stayed in the Vieux Quebec Suite; it was immaculate and spacious, and located in the top floor of the home. The host, Jean-Francois, was the perfect compliment to our visit to Quebec. He provided us with a delicious breakfast and interesting conversations each morning. The location was very good as well, located about 15 minutes from the old city and 2 blocks from Cartier where there many fine restaurants to choose from and a short 15 minute walk into Old Quebec. When we make a return trip to Quebec in the future, I will definitely return to this B&B.
