Beautiful arts venue in the middle of the city with easy access via the Metro. We were here to enjoy the ballet (Lady Chatterley) and loved the acoustics, lighting, comfortable seating, and wide aisles.
Beautiful living arts complex in the center of the city. Was in the concert hall and appreciated the beautiful hall and excellent quality of sound (and of the Montreal symphonic orchestra obviously). Everything is high quality , simple and accessible. Should be a model for...More

This is a pretty cool place to visit. Located amidst the hustle and bustle of Ste Catherine Street it's a gorgeous building with ever changing art installations. It also has shops and small restaurants. Worth stopping in if you're in the area. I always walk...More
The plaza at the Place des Arts is the perfect spot for people watching. A great place to sit and relax if feeling weary from your wanderings. There are a couple of cafe's on the plaza or bring a snack from a nearby shop.
Although those who travel by car may not appreciate the road closures, this area is nice to visit on a warm summer evening. Even more so when special events are taking place (Like the Christmas Fair in December).
One of the best things about visiting Montreal in the summer is the city’s commitment to public art.
This summer we were fortunate to have been walking without umbrellas during the late afternoon.

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
