Rue St. Catherine is a walking pedestrian street in Bordeaux flanked by shops, cafes, and international brand stores. It is so crowded on Saturdays and Sundays that the stroll is slow and elbow to elbow. Hang on to your purses. Evidently the French come from many other regions to shop and visit on this street. I did buy a great... More

Much like shopping streets everywhere. They are getting more and more alike every year. Can it be? Am I getting tired of shopping???

This is the place to come if you want to shop in Bordeaux although it is a bit full of "typical" high street names. However it also has lots of traditional restaurants and bars. Sale was in full swing in January so great place to hunt out some bargains.

it is arguably the main shopping street in town. and it is the longest shopping street in Europe ! (1 km long) many shops, restaurants, monuments at each end, will keep you busy if you like window shopping or regular shopping. many other streets run perpendicular, with many other shops/restaurants/places of interest to check out. have fun !

On a Saturday morning, this area was bursting with vitality with people carrying a variety of shopping bags. It is lined with interesting and tempting shops and there are endless choices as to where to eat.

Great place to stroll and shop. All major stores and brands on this strip with prices dropping the further you walk from the grand theatre. Great place for people watching.

I lived in Bordeaux for 15 years and spent a lot of time in this street. It's a must do when you're a tourist. The shops are getting posher as you go from Place de la Victoire to the Grand Theatre.

Its is amazing how crowded this street can be during the day. The longest commercial strip in Europe has everything you need. it is a landmark where you can find yourself in the city. it is a reference point. everthing is related to it, 3 blocks from Rue St Caterine, by the end of Rue Sante Caterine...
