Your tour of Old Québec City begins along the southwest wall of La Citadelle. Here you will discover Governors’ Promenade, built in 1960. The elevated boardwalk connects the Plains of Abraham (described in the Encircle Québec City guide) with the famous Dufferin Terrace. Governors’ Walkway is short – about 2,150 feet or .4 miles – yet has 310 steps. You are advised to start at this gazebo and walk down rather than up. Let the scenery and not the stairs make you breathless.
