Most Beautiful Cities In The World: Quebec City #23, Vancouver #5

Quebec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America and one of the most popular destinations in Canada. Now, it's also recgonized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Flight Network just ranked the capital of Quebec the #23 on its list of "The World's 50 Most Beautiful Cities." Quebec City is in league with Hong Kong at #24, San Diegoat #22, and, shockingly, Toronto at #21.

Only one Canadian city made the top 10: Vancouver at #5. Paris, New York, London and Venice round out the top five.

To compile this list, Flight Network asked "1000+ Travel Writers, Travel Bloggers and Travel Agencies from all around the globe, who have seen and experienced the best the planet has to offer." 

But in its section of Toronto, Flight Network highlights, among other things, the glass floor on the CN Tower...which is cool, but maybe not comparable to the vistas and sites of Quebec City.

Old Quebec has an old and almost royal charm to it. Dating back to 1608, this city has earned quite a reputation around the globe.  

The colonial city has a major European vibe going on due to its quaint cobblestone streets and breathtaking architecture, not to mention its accomodating locals.  

Stone architectural features, including the city walls, are of particular interest to tourists.

One of the most recognizable sights in Quebec City is the well-known and very photographed Chateau Frontenac, which sits atop the old city below the citadel.

The city is less than three hours away from Montreal and it has some of the most adorable restaurants, Insta-worthy streets, and views of any urban area in Canada.

Although Montreal didn’t make the list, I do feel a sense of pride that at least one city in our province did.
