If you happen to be in Paris on a Monday, you may find yourself at loose ends since most museums and many shops are closed. In that case, hop the subway to the Gambetta stop and spend a couple hours racking up Fitbit steps in...More

Extremely well kept, very peaceful, and an overall brilliant experience - could not recommend more. We had a very eccentric tour guide show us around, who was crazy but very knowledgeable. Make sure to check it out when in Paris.

A beautiful poignant place. Huge. Quiet and peaceful. Many beautiful old trees. Many families take their lunch and eat it resting on one of the many seats dotted around. Great day out.

Many people go there to visit Jim Morrison's grave, so did I. However there is much more to see. I didn't know that Oscar Wilde's grave is there too, for example. You also can see many family shrines, shrines of victims of World War II,...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
