The Citadelle was what made my trip to Quebec City.
Don't settle for seeing the Citadel from outside and peering through the front door. Though it's not exactly cheap, the guided tour is well worth the price. Not only do you get to see all around the interior of the fort, but you will get to walk through several rooms brimming with artefacts displaying the history of the city itself as well as the history of the military and the 22nd regiment in particular.
My one complaint would be that I did feel slightly rushed. In fairness, though, I tend to observe every item and read every placard. Everyone else in my tour seemed to be more than pleased with the pace. You have to keep with the tour, though, as there is an active garrison - bad luck for those of use that like to lag behind to see everything properly.
My recommendation: If you're in Quebec City, it would be criminal to miss this. It's great walking around the Old Town, but visiting the Citadelle puts everything in perspective.
