The Underground is a great respite from the heat or cold. The street level stores fronts seem to be easier to identify than in the Underground. The location and directions for several stores could be better. It might also help to provide a map so...More

Our underground mall is the perfect venue for comfortable shopping, window shopping and restaurant hopping when temperatures drop way below freezing point, and we are grateful to have it, avoiding slippery sidewalks in the process. Many buildings connect directly to this underground, which means one...More

It is a series of stores. Less sophisticated than a shopping center. Also, like a maze. We didn’t notice when one shopping started and the other finished. We went in the Summer. Maybe the real deal of such places is going in Winter, when outside...More

I couldn't really understand what this was until I saw it. It is really what appears to be the world's largest mall stretched under downtown Montreal. Not being a shopper I was more interested in how it worked in the fabric of the city. It...More

I explored the underground and some parts are very easy to find, but some are not - there are signs on some places and not on others. I found myself stopping and going and asking the people where I had to go next. Unless you...More

It seemed once we were in the Underground City that we were in a mall that just went on forever. Lots of great shops and areas where water features and public area for relaxing make this a happening kind of place. We enjoyed a couple...More

I really appreciate the fact that it is possible to visit the city without actually going outside. Once in the system you can go to shopping centers (Cathedral promenade), show (place des arts), sport events (Bell Center), convention (Convention Center, Place Bonaventure), work, universities, hotels...More

We made use of this city to escape extreme weather. It was great for that purpose. We also enjoyed the free fountain light and music show at 11 & 10 PM. There are some nice little shops to grab a souvenir or quick, casual bite...More

Not what it once was. The first time I visited Montreal the underground was so cool, but like most malls, they are slowly dying. Not too much going on in the underground city anymore. Sadly.

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

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
