"The Undergound" Downtown Tip by kala6487

Downtown, Montreal: 63 reviews and 89 photos

No trip for me is complete without some shopping. We discovered the Underground shopping area in downtown Montreal and I was blown away by it. Twenty-two miles of walkways with hundreds of stores are nestled under the city. Many major buildings and Metro stations are connected to it so you can spend a whole day wandering around without every having to go outside.

It's not a claustophobic as you would think. Many areas have sky lights to let the sun in. You could got lost in here but there are maps and I suggest getting one before you start out. Our hotel was connected to it and for a few hours at least we walked around in a nice, climate-controlled city within a city.
