“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

As this street is all pedestrian, it is easy to get around and does not feel overcrowded. You will find all the global chain stores here in one place, and from our experience, the variety was better than in Paris as it seems mainly locals shop here rather than tourists. The tram is a good way to get around and at only one Euro per trip, you can explore areas around the place easily. Supermarket is centrally located there too, so works well to pick up a bottle of water on a hot day!

“Lots of great shopping”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Honestly this is one of the better shopping areas I've been to since there is a nice assortment of stores for both men and women.

“Great place to walk and shop”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

It is hard to imagine such a large place reserved for pedestrians. There are many shops on this street especially the Etoiles shopping mall and the Econoprix which has excellent ready made food to take home. It had one of the best cheese bars with a cheese monger to recommend the right cheese for you. Their takeout counter was great for the kids with wholesome foods ready to be eaten. Excellent baked goods and their meat counter was also fabulous. When we were there they were hand carving a fresh baked leg of ham by the slice. Can not get fresher than that.

“Just for shopping”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Medecin doesn't even get over-crowded in August, so it's a great and easy way to do your shopping. You'll find almost everything you need on Medecin ( clothes, souveniers, banks, groceries, etc) but I wouldn't go there for a place to eat or to explore cultural shopping/antiques. A nice and roomy main street for basic shopping.
