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.

This historic red light area has become quite tame. Blame rampant gentrification and all the tour buses going to the Moulin Rouge. This has long been a nightlife playground and there are still some theaters and a whole lot of restaurants. Neighboring residential areas are...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.
