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

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.

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
