Yes it's basically a giant mall with shops and food courts but thinking about how this was accomplished is really quite mind-boggling when your down there. Having just visited Toronto and walked the Path, the Montreal Reso is way more impressive especially when you visit...More

Confusing. Just tons of shopping underground. Sort of feel like a rat in a maze trying to get around. Nothing you can't find above ground.

Staying in old Montreal and decided to spend some time in the Underground City. At first, we were a bit confused as to how we access the mall. We did not realize you have to go into a shopping building and then down into the...More

It is the second largest underground complex in the world, stretching over 32 km. It is very practical for the long winters Montreal goes through, as most people will skip stepping outside and use the underground city to get to work or school. Worth a...More

This was a fun place to walk through while it rained. We're not a shopping family, but for folks that love to shop, this would be a great destination spot. It was very clean, a lot to see and a great place to people watch.

this to me was OK to see but we didn't spend to much time there. I can see it used in the cold harsh winter, but in spring and summer you want to be outside. They shopping center has your typical stores, and food court.

The Montreal underground city is a lifesaver during winter. We can go around all Montreal downtown, starting at Place des Arts to Old Port and back to Peel and Eaton centre without need to wear your huge winter jacket ! You will find restaurants, stores,...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
