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 go to street level to figure out where you are.

Best to try to download a map, but be fair warned that you won't find signs showing how to get to the next connected building or mall.

In reality, the Underground City is underground malls, food courts connected via underground passages to some Metro and Rail stations.

Also, note that it is not particularly accessible for people who are mobility challenged.

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 downtown cinema complex without having to go outside.

A nice way to warm up in the middle of the frigid winter and to cool off in the hot and humid summer.

I’d been to Montreal a couple years ago in the summer and had no idea this existed. We were there a few days ago when there was a huge snowstorm and frigid temperatures. Staying at Hotel Bonaparte and then having direct access to the underground city was a fantastic way to hide from the winter elements. Nothing really to do there but shop and eat, but it was still something to do and explore.

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.
