The Necropolis, Glasgow's Victorian City of the Dead, is a vast and grand cemetery modeled on Père-Lachaise in Paris. Described as one of the most significant cemeteries in Europe, it is a major visitor attraction and patrolled by Park Rangers...more

The necropolis itself is steeped in history and the stories of hundreds of lives lived in the city. Fill of ornate and grand gravestones and tombs that tell too many stories to take in during one visit. Among the monuments are some of the most...More
One of the most ornate graveyards I've ever visited where all the great and good of Glasgow are buried overlooking the city.
There are great views of the city and cathedral from here and lots of ornate graves.
Visited here for the first time ever last month and loved every second. The architecture of the gravestones, tombs and monuments are just stunning. Very peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Luckily I only live 20 minutes or so away so I can visit again whenever. Great...More
We arrived at Glasgow Cathedral after hours, so we took a walk through the Necropolis. It sits up on a hill overlooking the city. You get a great view of the city from here, and can see a lot of history in the cemetery. Many...More

Day 1 definitely achievable, say hello to the Caravaggio for me in Santa Lucia. There is also a castle, a small museum and I would recommend a boat trip to the sea caves.. Day 2 We walked to the archaeological museum c 30 minutes from the bridge and then to the complex ie the Greek theatre and the rest which is about 15 minutes further on. You go right past the Sanctuaria as you go to the ruins from the museum. We walked back so I don't know about busses, sorry. The rest we didn't do but...More
Bus from Botega (via piave) to the Parco Acheologico (0 Replies)
Hello, I ve been trying to find a bus from where I am staying to the Necropolis but I dont understand the bus routes from AST. Can someone tell me a bus stop close by that goes by as close as possible by the PArco Acheologico? I dont mind waiting if they dont come often, but I have to take the bus as I am walking impaired. Thank you for your advice, Johanna If there is a bs map by now, I would of course like to know!

Auberive Necropolis (1 Reply)
What is the best way to get to the Military Cemetery of Aubérive (Marne), Town of Aubérive? I would travel from Paris or Reims. So far, all I can come up with is train from Paris to Reims and then rent a car from there to the cemetery. I have written to the tourist info local to the area however they didn't tell me anything I didn't know already. I'm willing to look at a day tour from Reims; anything really that can get me there and back in a day. Thanks for any help!

The cemetery is located at 49.193386 / 4.367906. We stopped there for a break whilst motorcycling through the area. The cemetery at that time (2011) was very large and very easily found to the immediate north along the road between St-Hilaire-de-Grand and Prosnes. and the vast number of French headstones was a stunning sight, with the German cemetery to the rear. I have photos. However looking at Google Earth (Oct 2018) and Street View, the thousands of French headstones appear to have been...More
