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
This is the place to have a quiet walk and to think about life. At the entrances you find a map with numbers to find the tombs of the famous people who are buried over here. Look for the tombs of Edith Piaf, Jim Morrison,...More
We went to Pere-Lachaise specifically to see Jim Morrison's grave. However once we were there we found a map of all the famous people buried there. We had no idea! Oscar Wilde and Chopin and many others! Walking up the paths it was so quiet...More
I had been to Pere-Lachaise in the past, but I had only focused on finding specific graves and so I think I missed how beautiful the big picture is.
This cemetery is huge. Do not wear uncomfortable shoes, you'll definitely suffer. It is home to...More
Obviously Jim Morrison ( The Doors lead singer ), and Oscar Wilde are buried here but it was a beautiful afternoon spent wandering around this neatly maintained cemetery- a must see in my opinion if your in Montmartre.

Pere lachaise is a stunning place to visit whilst in Paris. Very poignant seeing the beautiful tombs and gravestones and being stood 6ft above some iconic people such as Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde. Absolutely huge cemetery, can easily spend 6-7 hours here exploring and...More
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.
