Had Poutine. Had ice cream. Watched the water show. Handicap access is a little difficult. Well maintained.

Underground City in Montreal is exactly what it's supposed to be ! Shops, cafe, restaurants, venues and everything you would find above ground, is there! And it's all protected from the severe cold and snow!!! I loved how I could wander from shop to shop...More

We lost a day in that undefined maze. No information and no maps. We couldn’t even find our way back and the way to go to the pics we found here.

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

Parking is an issue throughout the shopping district and Old Montreal. There are places to park, but if possible I would leave the car at your hotel and take a cab or the metro. They provide easy access throughout the city... More

There isn't a "best" entrance. It depends on where you are. If you just want to walk through then start anywhere and walk in any direction. There are multiple directions to go and sometimes more than one way of going to the... More
