PigalleApprox. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

Farther north, at the border of the 18ème, is the infamous area called Pigalle, the extravagant un-chastity belt of Paris. Stretching along the bd. de Clichy from pl. Pigalle to pl. Blanche is a salacious, voracious, and generally pretty naughty neighborhood. The home of famous cabarets-cum-nightclubs (Folies Bergère, Moulin Rouge, Folies Pigalle) and well-endowed newcomers with names like "Le Coq Hardy", this neon neighborhood is what would be the "red light district" of Paris. This attraction shows another side to the esteemed French culture. Though it is undergoing a slow gentrification, visitors should exercise caution at all times.
