I love Montreal, and walking around Old Montreal, but I was somewhat disappointed with the lack of shopping available until I found the Underground City!! What a pleasant surprise! Its a little confusing finding your way around inside, but with help of the map kiosks,...More

True, it is great to avoid being outside in freezing winters. But, there are not very many signs posted that show how it all connects and how to get from point a to point b. Easy to run into a dead end and have to...More

There are plenty of cafes, stores organic too and a food court area. Useful for winter or for office workers!

If winter has a grip on your popsicle toes, try this on for size. You can reach this area by metro and basically walk for miles without having to step outside. Shops of all kinds and eateries are plentiful. You can even access a large...More

I knew it was shopping mall but I never found it. Suddenly I went underground and there it was...under the streets. It was great and also well hidden for tourist who didn´t know.

I couldn't believe that one could go almost from anywhere to anywhere without being exposed to the weather. That's just what you can do if you use this underground . One can also eat and shop as one walks from point to point. Truly amazing...More

Not sure why its called underground ;) Its a multi-level shopping arcade with mostly upscale stores, and a lot of empty storefronts. The latter makes it less than exciting to spend some time. Preferred the area outside this place

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
