We left our hotel on a cold February morning and spent hours exploring retail of all types. Once we figured out the lay out we saved ourselves some cold walks on subsequent trips.

While it’s nice to stay underground and out of the elements it’s very confusing, signs arent clear and it got frustrating. Definitely not handicap friendly as there are a lot of steps and escalators weren’t always working. Suggest you stay above ground and enjoy the...More

We joined a walking tour for the underground city and our guide Martin was awesome! We ventured into the concrete underground and walked through different era and times that the walkway, tunnels, stairways, etc... were built over so many years. It’s truly a great way...More

The Underground City is actually lots of shopping malls, rail stations connected underground that travels mostly along Ste-Catherine street. Nor really a tourist attraction- its just retails stores and food courts but a great way to cold

I used the underground walkways and passage ways to get from hotel to work. It was great! You don’t have to step outside at all and can walk the equivalent of at least 10 “street blocks” in different directions. When I wasn’t sure, I would...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

restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
