Last time I was there I stayed in Lévis across the river and took the passenger ferry which gets you right into the old city. It's a beautiful place to wander around.

Things to do in Quebec City - one day

You will be in the middle of the "Festival d'ete de Quebec" which will be going on during the time you are planning to visit. (Music festival) As mentioned by another member, you might want to stay in Levis (directly across the St-Lawrence River). Since you are going to Gaspe, you will already be at the right side of the river. You just take the ferry across and walk through the old Quebec city (close to the river) and go up near the Chateau Frontenac and also "Les Plaines d'Abraham" close to the Quebec Parlement.

Here is a list of things to do:

Ferry Quebec - Levis (best way to see the city-full view)
Vieux Quebec - Rue Petit Champlain (Old Quebec) lot's of shops and museums.
Terasse Dufferin - On the hill close to the Chateau Frontenac (walk along the cliff between the Chateau Frontenac and les Plaines D'Abraham)
Chateau Frontenac - Nice Hotel
Rue Du Tresor - Where the artist "painters" are located - Near Chateau
Rue St-Jean - Lots of bars and restaurants
Grande-Allee - Bars, Restaurant with terrasses close to Plaines D'Abraham.
Chute Montmorency - Highest fall in Canada (20 minutes East of Quebec City in front of l'Ile d'Orleans)
Basilique St-Anne de Beaupre (Few miles East of the Chute Montmorency)
Festival D'ete de Quebec - Music Festival between July 3rd and July 13th

Anyway, I was born in Quebec City and it is a beautiful town. You will enjoy the people and the food. A little touch of Europe in North America...

Enjoy your trip.
