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.

To see all of these stores integrated into this beautiful 18th. century architecture is a treat. It's an amazing place for window shopping since it is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe. A real field day for all of you shopaholics too!

Bordeaux is a long way from Paris. I dropped into the Tourist Office, but there did not seem to be many attractions on offer. I wandered out into the Square in front and viewed the Opera House and the Grand Hotel opposite. I attended a Wine and Cheese tasting, but that should have been named - 'A lesson for people... More

Only pedestrians walk the street and there are many stores to look at. We did buy some souvenirs here but so many of the stores are the same in the USA that I felt no incentive to look I. The large chain stores.
