This intricate network of endless shops, restaurants, Metro stations and more is a welcome respite from Montreal's brutal winter weather, as well as its often humid summer days. Get a map before you start out - its byways and passages can be confusing

We went here to escape the heat of the sun as we were passing by. There is lots of shopping available. We're not big shoppers, so we didn't have much we wanted to browse, but we did enjoy the bookshop.

A labyrinth of malls and complexes entirely underground. Lovely spot for A/C when it's too hot outside, especially considering this summer!

Mostly just a shopping centre. Convenient to reach the metro or another block during winter, but other than that… Except a few covered squares, this is just functional and a bit depressing. Maps showing the blue areas are very well done. Plenty of stairs and...More

If it’s minus 20 outside I understand why you would want to be able to move around in climate controlled conditions, get lunch or get on the train. This is a collection of shops, food joints and train stations that came about by accident and...More

The Underground is a great respite from the heat or cold. The street level stores fronts seem to be easier to identify than in the Underground. The location and directions for several stores could be better. It might also help to provide a map so...More

Our underground mall is the perfect venue for comfortable shopping, window shopping and restaurant hopping when temperatures drop way below freezing point, and we are grateful to have it, avoiding slippery sidewalks in the process. Many buildings connect directly to this underground, which means one...More

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
