For all you who like visiting old cemeteries in historic locations, the top of your bucket list should be Père-Lachaise de Paris, a mammoth cemetery in the heart of Paris. There is a metro station right next to one of the entrances, so it is...More
Visiting this cemetery shortly after arriving in Paris may have been overestimated. This cemetery is huge and you definitely need a map, otherwise you will miss many of the notable graves. I did not have a map, rather relied on a small layout depicted in...More
Had a great morning here - for the Metro to Pere laChaise in the pop up news stand you can buy a guide pamphlet of famous peoples graves and also fascinating graves to visit. The cost is 2 Euros 50. And then you enter the...More
You probably ask who comes to Paris and visits a cemetery as a tourist. Well, I'm sure you can read the other review of all the people that are interred here and of course you come to explore but also pay your respects.
We decided to visit as we had an hour or two to fill before our train to Munich. This seemed to be the idea of quite a few people. There is a map at the entrance which indicates about 100 famous graves, take a picture...More
I first visited Pere Lachaise about 18 years ago and often went back. It is more like a garden than a cemetery - always quiet and shaded - and of course the final resting place for many well known people - writers. artists, composers, musicians,...More
Cemetary was different at least from Scandinavia perspective. There are maps which show were the famous people are buried. The area is huge so the distances between the famous tombs are long. Don’t forget the chewing gum and lipstick.
You may think this is an outdated review but ...hear me out ..it's not. I went in 94 to see Jim Morrison's grave but 24 years later it's still one of the things I remember best about my trip to Paris. Go, check it out...More
This cemetery is pretty well known but still far enough to the northeast of the city center that it is not as busy as it could be. That is a good thing since it has enough visitors already, but not too many.

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
street to another as one passes from white walled provincial homes to tall blocks and reconverted homes. The whole area is an inspirational mix of people from all corners of the world frequented by artists, students, immigrants, and Parisian families. Once home to supporters of the Paris commune, its rebellious nature is now offset by its rural charms.
