Lots of stores / places downtown Montreal are linked by tunnels. There are many stores underground. The main shopping places are linked, the Montreal Metro too of course. Train station, Place Ville-Marie, etc. This is very handy when it's cold or rainy outside, special and...More

I think is a cool idea to put shopping center underneath a city. It was a rainy day, so instead of going to Mont Royal we ended up here. I loved it. I am from NJ and NY and we don't have this. Aside from...More

This is great in the cold winter, you can walk miles without setting foot outside. Best shops seem to be at the Mount Royal end of the trail.

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
