This place is amazing and a welcome respite from the cold. Shops and restaurants without having to go outside. A little to warm for my liking but many people looked comfortable.

The underground city was really great. Lots of shopping and eateries. We were there in mid October when it was getting cold so going underground even for the metro was special.

The Underground has many stores and places to get a quick bite to eat. It connects to the Eatons Center and the subway as well. Very convenient when the weather is bad.

We walked on some parts of the Underground City and it was very convenient, specially because it was freezing outside. That being said, we found that it was not easy to navigate, wecould not find a map or easy directions to follow.

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
