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.

To who knows Viale Ceccarini, Riccione, Rye Ste Catherine will be like to be at home: it's a long walkway that start at the square of the Teatre to end at the Cours Victor Hugo. Long walk-way with a lot of shops.

As Famous as this particular street is, and if you are visiting Bordeaux for the first time i recommend you pay a visit, Rue Ste Catherine offers nothing that is not available on your high street at home, high street brands and small boutiques line this lengthy street, eateries and bars abound so finding something to eat is not a...

If you are hoping to do some shopping, this is the place to go. There are several high end stores along this route. However, if you come from a major city, you have the same exact stores. You may find some unique Bordeaux shops here, but you may also find some interesting shopping off the main shopping area

If you want to shop while in Bordeaux and not spend too much money, this is the street. Many international shops located here such as H&M, Mango. Always busy. Check out the side street for many interesting bistros, coffee shoos and small local shops

This is just a shopping street that every country in the EU has. Yes is has a stone street but most of the shops are not that rare and everything you can buy here you can buy elsewhere.

A big plus in this streets favour is that it concentrates the shops that are not in shopping centres into this street and leaves many other more attractive streets free of both the shops and the crowds. It is quite nice to walk down to see the people and also convenient because it is fully pedestrianised, however the parallel streets... More
