You never get the feeling that you are anywhere other than in a large mall so i fail to see why this is considered a tourist attraction.

I thought this was to be a bit more than a shopping trip! Just one extensive mall. Not for me thanks.

We thought this was going to be a discovery tour of an old underground city. Instead it is a tour of non stop underground shopping malls. It does get confusing with regards to directions and where you are until you go above ground. Interesting how...More

I went with a purpose and was greatly disappointed. I went to one part of the mall as the 'Underground City' website and the stores website stated it was there. Couldn't find it, asked the 'Information booth' for assistance got "yep its just down there"...More

Underground city is, I’m told, the place to go in Canada when it gets really cold. It’s full of shops and food courts, cinema, wax museum and the metro station too. It is a little confusing with over 1000 retailers and restaurant in the tunnels...More

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

I don't think there's a "best" entrance. Just enter closest to wherever you are.
