An adaquet thing to do if it’s raining. A lot of places to eat and some shops, but the underground is very confusing if you’re not sure we’re your going, and the guide maps are no help.

There are several complexes scattered throughout (or accessible via long tunnels). The choices are just ok. The information staff are only limited to their complex (understandably) but there is no comparison available to see what is where so they should either learn a bit more...More

We visited underground city during the rain. It was impressive with plenty of stores and a food court area. There are some areas where it was difficult to get around with a stroller.

We were taken here on a free walking tour. Labyrinth of tunnels connecting different blocks, metro and train station with plenty of cafes and shops on the way. Light and clean. Ideal if the weather is bad. For those who have never seen it, there...More

There are things to see here but it’s mostly shopping and tunnels in between. I looked for a good tour but couldn’t find one. However you will be thankful if it rains or snows.

Had Poutine. Had ice cream. Watched the water show. Handicap access is a little difficult. Well maintained.

Underground City in Montreal is exactly what it's supposed to be ! Shops, cafe, restaurants, venues and everything you would find above ground, is there! And it's all protected from the severe cold and snow!!! I loved how I could wander from shop to shop...More

We lost a day in that undefined maze. No information and no maps. We couldn’t even find our way back and the way to go to the pics we found here.

This intricate network of endless shops, restaurants, Metro stations and more is a welcome respite from Montreal's brutal winter weather, as well as its often humid summer days. Get a map before you start out - its byways and passages can be confusing

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

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

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
