ILE D'ORLÉANS — At just 15 minutes from Quebec City’s downtown (by bridge), the Île d’Orléans has many activities to offer. About 7 000 people reside on this island which is 34 km long by 9 km wide. L’Île d’Orléans posseses a very rich history. The Île d’Orleans holds many tourist attractions, among them the Mauvide-Genest manor and Sainte-Famille Church (both erected in 1734) are a must to visit. The view on Montmorency falls is incredible. Shops, handicraft artists, vineyards and farmers will make you buy and taste the many local food and produce. High quality B&B’s are also located on the island.
