"Place Gambetta Area" Bordeaux Favorite Tip by KiNyA

Bordeaux General: 65 reviews and 85 photos

Favorite thing: The city's main shopping area is east of Place Gambetta along the pedestrianised Rue Porte Dijeaux and the botique-lined Cours de l'Intendance and Rue Sainte Catherinem where you'll find several major department stores and a fantastic cyber cafe! Galerie Bordelaise, a 19th century shopping arcade, is at the intersection of Rue Porte Dijeaux and Rue Sainte Catherine.
To get from Rue Porte Dijeaux to Place Gambetta and its beautiful garden, you have to pass through Porte Dijeaux, a former city gate built in 1748. Nowdays, Place Gambetta is an island af calm and flowers.
