You will be close to the Moulin Rouge, the Sacre Coeur and many other attractions. The area had seen worse days and is currently being revitalized. We rented an apartment here for 2 weeks and loved the many shops. Our breakfast was eaten home every...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.

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood 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

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.
