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.

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
