Montreal's underground is a great way to get around Montreal, as it stretches on for miles. Packed with shops and and variety of restaurants. We maintained and safe.

Just a short walk from inside the Queen Elizabeth to varied shopping and food ... lots of ATMs to get Canadian cash, and Tim Horton's for breakfast!

The correct term is the weather proof city as not all of it is underground. It is unique there is nothing like it anywhere else connecting offices, theaters, churches, all the universities, apartments, museums, restaurants as well as food courts, office buildings, shopping, public areas...More

Useful underground commuter tunnels with shopping in some areas. Didn't like some sections temporarily closed and notice not posted enough in advance meaning a walk back or detour

You can find some of the best food here, check near the Gare Central. Fun for shopping (you can find anything and everything) great for when you just don't want to be outside and there are always tons of people.

The shopping is so-so, but it is a pretty good way to get out of the freezing Montreal winter and heaps of snow. We found it really easy to use, and the maps clear enough. We could actually use it to get from our hotel...More

Good stores to shop at with decent prices. It was pretty neat to be underground while shopping. We did find it a little hard to find and had to ask quite a few people before accessing it.

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
