Get a whiff of the famous cabaret at Le Moulin RougeThe Moulin Rouge is the oldest, biggest and most sophisticated cabaret in Paris. Originally established in 1889 as a house for the performance of can-can dance, today it is a tourist attraction that offers cabaret dance entertainment and women dressed in grand feather headpieces. The glitz and glamour, however, comes at a steep price. The cheapest tickets are for €95, which are only for the show with no drinks or dinner. But with only 2-days to see Paris, you should postpone seeing a show for your next visit. This time, stick to enjoying the red windmill installed on the iconic building and taking pictures.
Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. It is immortalized by the works of Toulouse-Lautrec among others and marked by the red windmill on its roof.
Amelie's restaurant is right around the corner, definitely a tourist favorite. Must try to go see a show next time!
