Excellent for living in our cold Canadian climat
I love the idea of underground shops, restaurants and passageways, especially since we visited in the dead of winter and the city would have been nearly impossible if confined to the above ground streets. There is something unexpected around every corner of the system. Well worth taking the time to explore.
Would you like to leave your hotel, shop, go to the cinema, get your hair cut and do groceries without ever seeing the light of day?I bet you would if it's -20 outside during a frosty Montreal winter!The underground city is where downtowners live their lives during the coldest months, and with nearly 18km of combined amenities and shopping underground, it's easy to do everything you need to do without needing to go outside.Oh, Canada!
i was impressed withe subway system no noise very quiet. ride was smooth and fast.
The underground city is one continuous mall that spans 7 metro stations in the downtown area. Famous for its endless shops and boutiques and a sanctuary for those who seek to escape the unforgiving summer heat or the bitterness of winter, the underground city is an interesting way to get around the downtown area, great for grabbing some good eats and window shopping some famous stores. The excellent signs present helpful hints at each of the frequent exits onto main streets of Montreal and metro stations.
