Make sure you have a map so that you can find the graves of your favorite historic figures. Some of the monuments are enormous, some are artistic. Great views of the city. I appreciate the memorial to those slaughtered during the Commune.

This cemetery is the final resting place of Jim Morrison as well as quite a few other people. It’s massive. Jim Morrison’s grave is gated off, but you can still get a decent view.

It was cold, wet and windy when we visited, perhaps even adding to the experience. Before we visited, we had no idea just how vast this cemetery is. We were there to visit one specific tomb but should, with hindsight, have allowed two or three...More

Worth the hype! Quiet and beautifully maintained. Perfect afternoon activity on a cold, wintry afternoon in Paris. Allow yourself a few hours to explore and get lost.

First, choose to visit it on a day with good weather. A rainy or a very cold day will not let you enjoy strolling through it. Next, definitely download the map of the cemetery (you can do it by scanning a QR-code at its entrance)....More

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one

It's most likely closed On Christmas day, as will be lots of official buildings and musea. Certainly check the website when planning your trip. Enjoy your stay in Paris!
