Underground Montreal: directly accessible from the Hotel Bonaventure
Underground Montreal is a vast network of footbridges that extend beneath the surface. To give an idea of the scope of this network, it is nearly 30 kilometers of connection zones, passages and crossroads that unfold under the city center. Every day, more than 500,000 people pass through the underground city on their way to work, to university or to do business in more than 1,700 shops and businesses. It is therefore an ideal place to take full advantage of a day when the weather is not conducive to exploring outside. The Hotel Bonaventure also benefits from direct access to the metro network. This feature allows visitors to travel to a multitude of tourist destinations without even having to step outside.
