We were very interested in finding this "Underground city" but the fact is that lot of the sections is actually at street level or above ground and in shopping malls. The entrances are NOT clearly marked so it is not easy to find but you...More

We went on a rainy day expecting something worth wild and offering great shopping and local cuisine. The place was empty! There are a few stores and a small food court. The rest of upstairs was all corporate offices and businesses. You’re don’t within a...More

Many big name retailers, and smaller specialty stores. Fast foods--organic too! I spent a rainy afternoon inside, a bit lost at times, and managed to get jeans 40% off at WINN. If you look around you can find shirts for $10 and under. Get a...More

Although we went there on a perfectly beautiful day in May, it certainly opened our eyes about how people in Montreal survive the winter. There are so many facilities....basically everything except schools. It is easily accessible by public transportation or good ol' shoe leather express.

Stores are ordinary, regular American chains. Easy to get lost. Waste of time. Useful in winter for office workers. Utilitarian. Worst "attraction" in Montreal

Every store and food court you’ve ever seen is here. It’s VERY confusing to navigate even though we had a map. Basically you’re there to shop/browse, see the sights, so unless you’re absolutely hunting for something particular it’s fine. Wander around and enjoy it. There...More

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
