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.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
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
