Ports

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.
