We were able to walk to Place Des Arts the one afternoon we were in Montreal. It is extremely unique and family friendly. There are shops inside on lower level as well and tunnels through to shopping mall.Very quirky art and shows.

Take it from someone who have been to most performance halls in the world: Place des Arts is among the best. View and sound are good everywhere. Selection of performances is excellent and introductions are in both English and French. PdA is super!

Nice place to walk around and maybe see an outdoor concert. Just plan water and shade breaks on hot days. A lot of cement and it heats up

Our hotel was just in that area. We really enjoyed walking there in the evenings and watching the installations, projections and fountains. For people who enjoy going to the theatres/concerts/opera this is defiitely a place to be.
