Pigalle is a neighborhood and Metro stop in the Montmartre village in Paris. It is home to the Basilica du Sacre Coeur which offers the best views over the city and the Moulin Rouge cabaret. It is also the tourist and nightlife hub of Paris...More

We finally watched Moulin Rouge. I wanted to give it a good review after the bad review but there is a 3 months moratorium. It's quite a good show actually - like a topless version of Cirque du Soleil. The street is lined with sex...More

Pigalle is full of sex shops and girl clubs. Didn't visit Moulin Rouge, but on the outside it was nothing special. Sort of didn't fit the place and stood out.

We saw the area while on a bus tour and decided not to return, it was not just seedy, looked very run-down, did not look safe for a tourist and had a lot of cheap clothing shops; the only positive aspect was the range of...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

In Pigalle or in Paris in general ? Pigalle is ok ... a lot of tourists, some sex shops and peep shows / brothels, but nothing special. Safety is ok.
