Shopping and Design
Visitors and Montrealers alike adore shopping in the heart of MontrÃ©al. The charming Victorian setting of the Museum Quarter offers an abundance of exclusive boutiques, haute couture salons and renowned art galleries. Nearby, sheltered from the weather, MontrÃ©alâ€™s remarkable underground pedestrian network offers over 18 miles (30 km) of walkways past some 1,700 businesses of all types. Just above, the celebrated Sainte-Catherine Street boasts the largest concentration of stores in Canada. This vibrant street is home to the most extensive collection of fashion boutiques and ready-to-wear shops in the country.
A stoneâ€™s throw away from downtown MontrÃ©alâ€™s frenetic energy, the craft shops and antique dealers lining the picturesque streets of Old MontrÃ©al take you back in time for an unforgettable shopping experience. And just outside the downtown area, a profusion of trendy neighbourhood boutiques promise original designs, unconventional fashion finds, and the latest in style and comfort, all in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
