Trois-Rivières (historically and rarely Three Rivers, [1]) is the second-oldest city in Quebec, founded in 1634. It lies almost half-way between Montreal and Quebec City and can make a nice stopover on travel between those two cities.

Get in

Route 40 between Quebec and Montreal passes straight through Trois-Rivières.

Get around

See

The main (arguably only) sight in Trois-Rivières is the old city (vieux-ville), concentrated by the river along rue des Ursulines. It's far smaller than those of Montreal or Quebec, but picturesque in a low-key way and worth a stroll.

Eat

  • Bistro L'Ancêtre, 603 rue des Ursulines. Oddly enough, this is the only restaurant on Ursulines, tucked away in a suitably old building at the far (east) end, but it draws a local crowd in addition to tourists. The food is more Italian than French, with pizzas and pastas making up most of the menu, but all mains include soup, dessert and coffee and cost only $7-12.
