It is easy to walk straight into live entertainment or a fair here. We even got a fashion show. Most if not all events are free to the public. There are tons of restaurants along the promenade.

Visited the Place des Arts with a small group tour prior to joining a cruise ship. We found the activity easy to get around, the displays of interest and well worth looking at . We were recommended by Canadian friends and enjoyed this visit.
