Montmartre Cemetery is incredible! There are beautiful graves and crypts galore. Some of the memorials are so unusual, that they are certainly classified as works of art. There are quite a few luminaries buried here and they do offer laminated loaner maps to locate them....More

It's not the biggest cemetery in Paris, but it may be the loveliest. Most Americans want to visit the one where Jim Morrison is buried (Pere LaChaise), so this is a less crowded alternative. There are still plenty of famous folks buried here...including filmmaker Francois...More

Well worth a visit. Final resting place for many famous people this is a well laid out place with a peaceful atmosphere despite the bustling city all around. A good walk and great place for peaceful reflection.

You have to hand it to the French: they REALLY do cemeteries well. I am part of a cemetery photographing group in South Africa, so a fair part of my trip to Paris was spent in cemeteries. This is bigger than a lot of the...More

I've visited Paris many times over the past 40 or so years. And I can say that the Cimetière de Montmartre is quite possibly my favourite spot in Paris. Lots of famous people have found their final resting place in the cemetery. But don't worry...More

Interesting cemetery to visit with some well known residents, bit hard to navigate. Went looking Degas only to find him behind a tree as De Gas. Also Dalida was worth visiting. So many unusual monuments

Famous for the location of the fancy tomb of Dalida, superstar from the disco era. Come and worship, maybe sing a song?

Say what you like about the French, they do a good cemetery. Although a map is available not all of the monuments are easy to find. Do your homework before you go if there are any graves you are particularly looking for. Be prepared to...More

My favorite cemetery in Paris...Lechaise is insanely beautiful, but a bit overwhelming. This one feels more walkable and just as intriguing.

I spent the most amazing few hours in the pouring rain looking for dead people. What an atmospheric place to visit. Tombs packed closely together, some with broken grilles and doors partly open, trying not to slip on the wet paths. We found Nijinsky, Zola...More

Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

Was there the yesterday and saw fresh hay in a box that looked like a little house for cats behind one of the mausoliums pretty much out of sight.
