Like other cities shopping streets. This consuming chaos caracter kills local real attitude of the area. Long long street goes by brands stores. People does not aware this historical soul of all architecture.

Our hotel was on the Rue Sainte Catherine so we got to know it quite well. There are most of the big chains but lots of interesting little shops too. The fact that it's pedestrians only (most of the time) is a bonus. Really enjoyed wandering around.

Good shopping street in Bordeaux centre, full of life. Good that it is entirely pedestrian. Good for people watching too. Everyone in Bordeaux will walk on it.

This is a long pedestrian walking streets bipustling with excitement. There are street artists, shops for every taste and budget, great little cafes. People watching is what makes this so fun. There are many locals, as well as tourists from all over the world. A must do when in Bordeaux.

Rue St Catherine- it really is the longest shopping street in Europe. Full of high end shops, and also really low budget, market-like shops. Everything you need on one street and a truly enjoyable shopping experience. Of course there are plenty of lovely French eateries to stop for a bite to eat too. Could easily spend a day here. Unmissable... More

The length of the street is impressing, but apart from that, there is the bunch of shops one finds in every major city. Street artists make it a bit less boring, but don't make up for the boredom of the retailers. If a shopaholic, a must, otherwise, avoid !

I am told that it's the logest pedestrian mall in Europe. While the shops themselves are nothing to write home about, you can find most of them anywhere, the street itself is the main attraction. Along the entirity of the 1.2km mall is a mass of people going about their day, buskers, kids up to no good and the other... More

Ste Catherine is a very long street full of standard, but also surprisingly different shops. There is something for every taste and budget. Lots of fashion, but also toys, gadgets, electronics, sports and books. Don't forget to discover also some of the smaller side streets.

It was fun wandering down the street window shopping. We would occasionally see street performers who were very clever. Lots of areas to sit and enjoy glass of wine and people watch.
