I probably should've taken French classes more seriously in school. I'm paying for it now, out here feeling like a tourist in my own country. Quebec City has got high levels of decadence, though. This was a planned-last-minute trip to do some location scouting. I took the VIA Rail to Montreal for cheeeeap. Its a 5 hour ride that I whole heartedly recommend—especially if you can book a ticket that departs in the evening.
Old Quebec City is about 8 hours from Toronto. Scenic is only the half of it, and this is the closest you'll get to France within Canada. These photos made possible by my iPhone, which have also been grammed.
