I will never return to this street. 1/2 of the street is filled with kind of chinese shops the other 1/2 has some chains as h&m sephora ou pull &bear. Very disorganised, there is no place to eat something decent, etc...

If you have enough time to walk around you gotta go there. This is a very long road full of shops and people. If You don't like shops go during the night, the street is full of restaurants and brasserie and the view is beautiful

This street is full of shops, if you like shopping, this is one of the best place to go while in Bordeaux. You have also galeries lafayette like in Paris, it´s the busiest street i saw in Bordeaux.

You may want to skip to a reviewer who appreciates shopping for shopping's sake; that said, I strolled the Rue St Catherine several times (it's one of the only uninterrupted streets in the city) but never saw anything 'eye-catching' (compare to Champs in Paris or St James in London)--it was more like a mall stretched out into a straight line.

Dating back to the Roman occupation of Bordeaux, circa 50BC, this street today is the home to hundreds of retail shops from The Gallery Lafeyette to Quicksilver. While not historically significant, it is a fun place to visit, shop and watch people.

The street is bustling with shops, that range from the really cheap, not always so nice, to the international brands. It's nice because it is very busy, lively, shopping is varied, and this is where the Bordelais go. And you can stroll between 2 great places, the Place de la Victoire, and the Place Pey Berland (with the Cathedral), so... More

The Rue Ste Catherine was once a Roman road for commerce and it maintains its classic pedestrian flavor, with a cobbled walkway, stores ranging from fancy boutiques to bookstores, to sandwich franchises. Occasionally a delivery car comes by, but this is a pedestrian oriented street that is one of the longest such shopping streets in France. Lively and interesting.

At nearly one and a half kms this is the longest shopping street in Europe. Everything from designer goods to cheap and cheerful.
