Unlike some squares which are devoid of life this one is bustling. It has numerous cafes and foot traffic as it’s at the end of the main shopping street. Look out for the tortoise sculpture in the middle of the square.

Located at the very end of Rue St. Catherine, this large square is surrounded by many small bistros. I have tried a few and the meals are all pretty good. The Place, ( square) is also a tram stop as it is also next to one of the University of Bordeaux campuses. Lots of students and young people in the area. I am certain in the evening is is quite lively.

It is the touristy area where you can do historical sightseeing, stroll on the longest street (rue sainte catherine), and enjoy some french cuisine or coffee.

A nice area for tourists to visit with the historical architecture there and the modern sculpture style monuments that you can view and touch up close

Cafes at the edge of the square as well

One of the tram stops right at the Place de la Victoire so you can easily find it. Also, the market Marche des Capucins is a short walk from this spot. And many people are walking around this area.
