Quebec for a day?

Quebec for a day?

Hello

Going to Montreal for the first time in August for 3 nights, about 2 1/2 days of sightseeing. Is it worth going to Quebec City for a day or should that be another trip?

TIA

Quebec City is gorgeous, and I'd rather spend time there than in Montreal. Save it for another time and enjoy it thoroughly.

We plan on either starting or finishing a cruise in Quebec next autumn. How many days for Quebec and Montreal?

It is doable as a day trip. It's more efficient to stay overnight because it takes 2 1/2 hours to drive each way but it is doable. If you're going all the way to Montreal, I'd recommend doing it as it's a much different city compared to Montreal. It will be a long day so plan accordingly. Don't miss Montmorency Falls & Fairmont Le Château Frontenac.

We normally recommend a minimum 4 days Montreal and 2-3 for Quebec City. So leave Quebec city for a second trip.

Quebec will be this trip as that's where the cruise finishes. ? skip Montreal for another trip? or is Montreal worth fitting in?

Tony2326 - how many days in total do you have available ... that will be the determining factor. "Worth it" questions are completely subjective ... do some research on the two cities and decide which appeal. Only you can decide if a destination is worth visiting, based on your interests and the amount of time you have. There are lots of resources available to help in your research.
