The Paris Red Light district is officially named is Quartier Pigalle. If you are not into this type of scene, it is best to spend your time elsewhere.In Quartier Pigalle you will find world-famous landmarks like Moulon Rouge.

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.

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.
