    I think travelling all the way to Paris and not seeing the Moulin Rouge is crazy.

    You may aswell goto Las Vegas and see the Eiffel Tower!

    Plus Moulin Rouge has like a 10 metre anaconda and a hell naked (almost) chick wrestles it in a glass swimming pool!!!

    My tips are:

    See Moulin Rouge,
    Get there early,
    Obviously prebook tickets – 89 Euro.

    Dont go see it by yourself.
    As it is a not so nice neighborhood afterall!

    Its about a 10 minute walk from Nouvelle Eve i think.

    Try meet some other people going on your tour prior to your tour leaving, and organise a group booking.

    By emailing Moulin Rouge direct they will sit you all together, then you can split a cab home afterwards (about 60 euro away from the campsite per cab).

    I went on Euro Vista and the cabaret show was also on our first or second night of tour. Everyone went to the Nouvelle Eve show and it was worth it. It seems expensive, but you get a great meal, wine, and dessert for that price, plus the show is fun. The Moulin Rouge is just across the street from Nouvelle Eve so you can take pictures and stuff from the outside, which is really what most people really want to do anyway. also from what I understand, the price of the Moulin Rouge show doesn’t include dinner.

    Hi Kate,
    I went to Paris in 07, and the Moulin Rouge show was fantastic, so i highly reccommend it!
    I went to the 11pm show, which did not include dinner, only drinks, so me and my friends grabbed a quick bite to eat before going.
    Hope that helps!

    haha B-rad….he was on my tour!!! (love from kayleigh) i went to go see nouvelle eve and though it was good i really wanted to see moulin rouge and regretted not seeing it….i agree with brad if you are going to Paris see it. you don’t want to go home with regrets!…ohhh and beware of see-through phone booths those are a killer when your drunk…..Wink<!--graemlin:;)--> have fun, Paris was by far my favorite city!

    oh feeling the love kayls!

    thanks for the back-up.

    the only downer about doing moulin rouge is you dont get to mingle and hang with your newly met tour mates as Paris is usually the first stop of your tour.

    But dont miss Moulin Rouge, and the Anaconda wrestling half naked chick, woot!

    Its like going only up the eiffel tower only to level 1!

    I was also on the same tour as Brad. I also went to see Moulin Rouge and I am glad I did. Also watch out for the pickpockets after the show Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->
