Moulin Rouge • Nightlife • Touristy
Nighttime's the right time for hanging out in this iconic, racy red-light district where folks can leave their hats on — and little else. After all, it's the home of the famed Moulin Rouge. Ever wonder why van Gogh and Picasso did some of their best work (art, that is) here? If you're not a night owl, passions and playfulness run high during the day, and plenty of goodies stimulate the senses, like artisanal patisseries, antiques stores, risqué shops, and chic sidewalk cafes.
