This area is a small replica of Paris. By that I mean, shopping Makkah. If you try to speak in French and than converse in English it will take you a long way to getting good advice on sale items. Galleries Lafayette is a highlight, mango and a few chocolate stores along the way. Try to quench your thirst after... More

1.4 km of shopaholic heaven starting from Victoire station to the Grand Theatre end, with the shops getting progressively more expensive and higher end as you walk towards Grand Theatre. A great mix of local homebrands to world renowned names. There are also a number of food stores and fast food restaurants along the way for refreshments and lunch. Great... More

Pretty awful unless you are in Bordeaux for mediocre souvenirs and low end tat! I hated it and got off it asap.

More shops on this street than any other in Europe. It is long and straight with interesting things to see in the side streets.

If you like shopping you will be in heaven and it seems most of Bordeaux loves shopping too. On Saturday it was an amazing scene as most of the city's people were on the shopping strip. All of "the names" are represented and others as well to provide a variety of offers. Don't stick to Rue Ste Catherine as there... More

This pedestrian Street is a main shopping street with rather affordable shops and food outlets, very animated and pleasant to walk. It has a slight slope offering a beautiful view. Some perpendicular streets are good extentions to roam in.
