Starting off with one of the most festive places in the country, Old Québec in the winter becomes transformed into a festive village straight out of a Dickensian novel. They hold a German market every year, which allows you to hold a warming mug of mulled wine as you travel from stall to stall- tasting various meats, cheeses and alcohol.
