  • Place du Tertre

The Place du Tertre is a square in Paris’ XVIIIe arrondissement. Only a few streets away from Montmartre’s Basilica of the Sacré Cœur and the Lapin Agile, it is the heart of the city’s elevated Montmartre quarter.
With its many artists setting up their easels each day for the tourists, the Place du Tertre is a reminder of the time when Montmartre was the mecca of modern art. At the beginning of the 20th century, many penniless painters including Picasso and Utrillo were living there.
L’Espace Salvador Dalí, a museum principally dedicated to the sculpture and drawings of Salvador Dalí, can be found a few steps from Place du Tertre.

  • The Moulin Rouge

Type :    Cabaret – Music Hall
Founded : October 6, 1889
Address : 82 Boulevard de Clichy, 75018 Paris

Metro : Blanche

Moulin Rouge (French pronunciation: [mulɛ̃ ʁuʒ], Red Mill) is a cabaret built in 1889 by Joseph Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia. Close to Montmartre in the Paris district of Pigalle on Boulevard de Clichy in the 18th arrondissement, it is marked by the red windmill on its roof.
The Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today the Moulin Rouge is a tourist destination, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. Much of the romance of turn-of-the-century France is still present in the club’s decor. The show features a troupe of 100 artistes including the famous Doriss Girls, 60 outstanding dancers decked out in feathers, rhinestones and sequins. You can choose either the show alone, with a half-bottle of champagne per person included in the ticket price, or dinner and show with three possible menus. Spend an unforgettable evening at the Moulin Rouge and walk out all starry-eyed after the show.
