1. Montréal: Day Trip along the Chemin du Roy to Trois-Rivières
Embark on a sightseeing adventure of New France along the oldest road between Quebec City and Montreal, Chemin du Roy. Take in the landscape during the ride to the beautiful downtown of L'Assomption. Travel through time as your guide shows you the highlights of the city’s 300-year heritage. Admire eye-catching sites and residences that line the Saint Lawrence River as you continue your journey. See the birth home of Marie-Rosalie Cadron, an inspirational figure that challenged traditional positions in the mid-1800s. Embrace history as you step inside a general store established in 1915. Stop for a lunch break at your own expense before seeing the Moulin seigneurial de Pointe-du-Lac, a jewel of Quebec’s rural architecture. Explore Canada’s second oldest city, Trois-Rivières, on foot as your guide leads you through its picturesque downtown before catching breathtaking views of its waterfront. End your day trip with a visit to Notre-Dame-du-Cap Basilica where thousands come in pilgrimage each year. Relax as you take in the landscape once more during the ride back to Montreal.
