We walked along Rue Ste Catherine a few times - we seemed to come across it no matter which route we took. It has a good selection of shops, with some bargains (I bought a nice little scarf for €7 when the evening became chilly) and seems a popular street to walk along.

Perfect for strolling and sampling the many delights of this beautiful city. Rich variety of restaurants, serving a range of wonderful dishes from all over the world. Very reasonably priced, excellent value for money. How is it that wherever you go it is possible to order a glass of wine, white or red, which will be at the perfect temperature,... More

Best place for shopping in Bordeaux. More high end type items. God if you like to walk and look around. Not a great place to find "souvenirs".

Coming from Asia, we got a very good bargain at Go-Sport, Andre, Decat and MNG. Can't ask for more as the price offered were much cheaper and in fact the sports items were exceptionally cheap and can't get it at home.

Rue St Catherine is a pedestrian street in the touristic center of Bordeaux where you can find good shops (Galerie Lafayette, FNAC, etc). Nice restaurants can also be found in the small streets close to it.

This is beautiful. A mostly pedestrianised street that must be two mile long. Sandstone buildings on both sides. Lots of assorted shops and thousands of people. A great bustling street

This is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe. If you start from the Grand Theatre end, you get a great view of the street stretching ahead of you. There are every kind of shop along the street including the supermarket Carrefour, small boutiques and plenty of cafés and bars.

The Rue St Catherine is probably Bordeaux's longest street running from the Cours D'Intendance right down to the Place de la Victoire. It's traffic free throughout and lined with shops etc in keeping with the city centre and good for a relaxing browse.

This street is full of shops that get more upscale the further north you go. If you're interested in shopping, this is the place.
