Rue Ste Catherine--the longest pedestrian street in Europe--is the main shopping area in the city. The 1.2 km (.75 mi) rue runs north and south, linking Place de la Comédie and Place de la Victoire. At the midpoint, visit Place Saint-Project to see its church, bell tower, and fountain. In addition to individual shops along the street, you 'll also find the entrance to Galerie Bordelaise, a shopping mall that opened in 1834.

  • It would be the longest pedestrian street in Europe. According to me, the most interesting shops occupy 2/3 of the street from the entrance on the side of great Theatre. Do not forget the new promenade St. catherine (at the level of the 25 Rue Ste Catherine).

  • The street in Center City missed in Bordeaux! Classic franchises and the less common shops (clothing/shoes/telephony including Apple Store / snacks...) The top of the street from the place where the Grand hotel of Bordeaux is very good. The last part of the street (the bottom) is however without interest (stores low end where everything is "made in China")

  • Square of victory, the grand theatre is the longest pedestrian shopping street in France. Throughout your visit, you can find major shopping stores in Bordeaux which those Legos, Fnac,..., perfumeries, clothing everything you want to see. For lovers of old stones, the route runs along the old medieval districts perfectly preserved in their juice. Guided tours are organized to discover the incredible wealth of places. All around, many museums are present and easily accessible, the City Hall, the impressive cathedral, large luxurious theatre, instead of the scholarship and the docks with the mirror of water, the promenade of Garonne and many other things. There is no doubt that one day will not be enough for all to see. For the gourmés and night life, they will find small nuggets of restaurants and entertainment at every corner.
