I’m not a high end shopper, so it was nice to find this shopping street with regular priced items. Lots of good eats and specialty candy shops. Don’t t forget to look up! The buildings are beautiful!

This is a pedestrian shopping street as you find in all French cities. The shops are mainly (inter) national shops that are found all over the country. Mixed in between are cafe's, restaurants and waffle shops. The best thing is people watching.

Many shops and cafes/restaurants line this street that connects the north/south sides of the old town core. A stroll won't take that long to complete so give it wurl. Recommended.
