What to expect

Discover the most libertine district of Paris from back in the 18th century! Listen to your guide on your smartphone, visit at your own pace, and customize your itinerary as you wish!

The walking tour starts by St. George's Square, and the trendy "New Athens" district, just south of Pigalle. Discover how the district was transformed into a paradise of pleasure back in the 18th Century. And get acquainted with some of the notorious courtesans who turned history upside down by blowing a wind of freedom into a puritan society. Rather explicit! Back in the day, Paris had more than 700 brothels, and up and running until the 20th century. As these places were expensive, coming here regularly was a sign of wealth and socially important to show off. Somewhat like driving a Ferrari today! Painters like Toulouse-Lautrec, Edgar Degas, and Pissarro lived in this neighborhood and enjoyed painting the libertine hop spots. South Pigalle's sensual stories trigger automatically along your route, right where they happened! You'll discover the many personalities who have contributed to building the sulfurous reputation of Pigalle, the red-light district of Paris.

The tours are designed by local and passionate guides. Visit at your own pace and customize your itinerary according to your desires! A short stop at a terrace, a visit to a store or even a craving? you can resume the visit when you want, right where you stopped. Impossible to get lost. The guide indicates clear audio directions to follow and a map can also be viewed if you prefer visual guidance. And if you take a wrong turn, the integrated geo-localization system will bet you back on the right track!

The tour ends at the emblematic Moulin Rouge, in the heart of Pigalle, the "red district" of Paris.
