Very long street which when busy looks like a marathon run! However many of the shops are all the usual brands found anywhere these days. There are other shopping areas and streets nearby far quieter that have more individual shops with better service. Did look pretty with the decorations just before Christmas though!

Supposedly the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe. May be, unfortunately the stores are unimpressive succumbing to the globalization trend where international chain stores take over every thing. Walk along the Gironde, you'll enjoy it more.

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
