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.

The Rue de la Republique starts directly in front of the central Gare in Avignon, and takes you through Place L'Horloge and directly to the Palais de Papes. Yes, for the most part, it is a high street, but what a beauty! There are churches, theaters, and the lovely Square Agricol Perdiguier, which is a peaceful, easily accessible (and very... More

The main street leads straight from the railway station to the centre of the city (Place de L'Horloge and Palais des Papes. Like most main city streets has all the large shops, restaurants and cafes, and a really good tourist information office, the staff here are wonderful.

Just like most towns in the world Avignon has a main street. Chock full of stores, Hotels and cafes there is also a supermarket. The supermarket Carrefour City is located next to the McDonald's and is a great place to pick up drinks or food for a picnic.

There were lots of restaurants to eat, stores to shop in, street performers to be entertained! A lot of ambiance walking down the street. They had really cool ice cream (soft serve) machines that whirled the soft serve in all different colors as it came out! It was so cute. I really enjoyed my time spent here.

Great access to the heart of Avignon. Lots of shops and the tourism office is there. Remember to ask for your Avignon pass. Its free and it gives discounts to sights. Other than that, its just a street.

Nothing special but it is the Main Street of walled Avignon. Few cafés and they are very touristy. My philosophy is the smaller the street the better the experience and Avignon is no exception.
