Ports

Charlottetown is a capital city of a Canadian Prince Edward Island province. Both the waterfront and the Vicotiran-era houses in town provide for great walking tours. Despite its small size, Charlottetown is a lively place, with its Centre of the Arts, St. Dunstan's Basilica and beautiful Victoria Park serving as main attractions. Take a walk through Victoria Row, a cobblestone street with a mix of great cafes, unique little shops and music all around.

Quebec is the oldest port in Canada with the Old Quebec district declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you're a nature lover, you cannot miss the Montmorency Falls, and if you prefer art, the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec is the place to go. Visit the aquarium for the unique exprience of witnessing polar bears from underwater and take a stroll through the Old Quebec, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
