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

The underground city is an amazing feat of architecture. Great way to travel between pretty distant parts of the city without having to emerge into the cold. But we were a little disappointed with the shopping options available in the underground. After hearing so many...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

The Underground city in Montreal is definitely worth a visit : there are lots and lots of shops and you can spend hours here ... Direct access to the metro, air conditioned, a perfect alternative on very warm/cold days !

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
