It's maybe just because we have similar cemeteries in Italy, that it didn't seem so interesting to me. It is a nice and quiet place, though.

I went to Pere-Lachaise Cemetery on New Year's Day of this year (2018.) Mostly because a lot of venues were closed, but also I'd heard a lot about it. It was a grey day, which added to the atmosphere. But since winter in Paris is...More

This was not enjoyable, as you are walking through a cemetery, but a great visit. The grounds are extremely large and you could spend a good amount of time here meandering through the streets and reading the names and dates of those who have passed....More

Given French cultural history over the last 3 centuries has solely revolved around Paris, it's no surprise that its greatest figures dominate the cemetery of Pere-Lachaise. Piaf, Proust, Moliere, Chopin, Balzac, Bizet, Collette, Delacroix to name just a few plus some token foreigners like Wilder,...More

A huge cemetery probably one of the largest in the word. Accommodating graveyard of many great people and their families for many many years. Really well managed. At the entrance, one can find location, graveyard of people with their names. Simply nice.

My favorite tomb is Oscar Wilde! Good to wander around or get a map, I believe there are apps you can download. Gorgeous monuments and headstones! Nice to explore areas outside of the city center.

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
