Today in this article of French in Bordeaux we are going to talk about shopping in Bordeaux. But let’s not focus on the “longest street” that is the famous Rue Sainte-Catherine. When I go shopping in Bordeaux I’d rather go on the many little cute streets of Bordeaux, and there are so many in this beautiful city that if I talk about all of them in this article it will be too long. So I have chosen to talk to you about my three favorite streets.
First of all, I wanna talk about Rue Saint-James, which is pretty known but also really pretty. This street starts with one of the main places of interest (lieu d’intérêt) of Bordeaux which is La Grosse Cloche. This cute little street is full with cafés and bars and also many shops. It is a really nice place to have a path to see La Grosse Cloche and to go shopping and if you’re too tired you can sit and relax by drinking a coffee !
Rue des Remparts Shopping in Bordeaux
I also really love this street because it is really close to another place of interest of Bordeaux which is the place Pey Berland or sometimes called Hôtel de Ville, because there is the city hall. At the end of this street you have Porte Dijeaux and its street which is another place of interest. So if you wanna have a nice walk in the center of Bordeaux you can visit this place and go for a little shopping in this little street.
Rue Notre-Dame Shopping in Bordeaux
If you’re having a path on the quais of Bordeaux during the market on Sunday morning, you may want to buy good bread and have a nice little walk on the street of Notre-Dame. During this walk you are also going to see the beautiful cathedral (that is not the Cathédrale de Notre-Dame because this one is in Paris) but this is another place of interest in Bordeaux. In this street you can buy bread, flowers and sit to have a coffee and spend good times with family and friends in the nice neighborhood of the Chartrons.
