Main street that goes directly from the train station to the Place de l'Horlage and Theater, and the Palais des Papes. Seems to be the main shopping street with clothes, shoes, take-away cafes, etc.

Rue de la Republique has a distinctly commercial character, so don't mistake it for a notable cultural-historic attraction. It's good for an hour’s worth of recreational shopping, but it’s nothing special. A word to the wise: Motorists tend to drive quite fast on this busy street. We saw pedestrians jaywalking and ignoring crosswalk lights at grave peril, and there were... More

This is the main avenue for traffic inside the walls. If you are into shopping this is a real mix of national names and local shops. This is accessible by car but very restrictive. This main avenue is good for a drop off and then park at the underground Palace parking area. Very easy to get to from the metro... More

This is the Main Street in the old city with many name-brand stores. Nothing remarkable, but watch your wallet and purses. Pickpockets are common.

Pleasant enough place to stroll but sort of a Tourist Trap. The Nicholas has some great wines and the Monoprix has a nice selection including some local products. With a few more exceptions it average or slightly above.

Dull high street with chainy shops. Only bought a couple French brand shampoos from a pharmacy as they are half the price of London prices. The positive is the high street is close to Avignon Train station SNCF, bus station (PEM) and tourist information office.

This street is the commercial heart of Avignon. Architecturally speaking, there are some nice buildings, but if you don't want to window shop or buy something, it is merely the way to get from the gate to the Palis des Papes. There are pedestrian only areas in the city that make shopping less hectic than on this main thoroughfare.

The first impression was: it's clean for a street near train station. As soon as you exit the station, this is the street facing you that takes you to Old town centre ( if one considers City Hall as the centre ) directly through this straight street. It does not have wide boulevard feel as the street has only two... More

The smaller streets off to the side had more interesting shops, it seemed. Parts of the street seemed "sketchy" at night.
