It's $3 to avoid the stairs. It was December, well below zero (Farenheit) and we were cold so we took this down to Petit Champlain. It worked and we arrived safely and quickly. To get back to our lodging, we climbed the steps... they also...More

Worth the small cost when it is freezing outside and the uphill walk feels daunting. Not much of a view for us as we were in the back and it was crowded. Everyone must take at least one Funicular ride in their life.

Small elevator that’s lets you travel from lower town to the chateau Frontenac. Accept all payments and I believe it was $3 a person. We walked down the stairs and roads to get to lower town but because of young children decided to take the...More

Took the Funicular to get from lower to upper town to save having to get a taxi. Was nice to go up once, but I'm not sure I would pay again unless I had to.

It was a fun way to go up. It is not necessary, the stairs are not that tiring, but especially if you are with kids, it is a nice way to go up. $3 (adults or kids).

At only $3.00 a ride this a great way to get a unique view of the Saint Lawrence and the lower city. You can use the stairs in the opposite direction if you wish.

After a day of exploring the Lower Town, the funicular was a welcome sight -- easy way to get up that big wall.

I read on here that if you're going to the Upper part of town to ride on the back end of the gondola and the front end of the gondola for going to the Lower part and they are absolutely correct!

For our stay, we parked in a parking garage and walked everywhere. This garage would be about 2 blocks away from the top side of the funicular, on the other side of the Hotel Frontenac. Not sure if there are others closer... More
