I visited this cemetery to see the gravesites of Claude Debussy, Eduard Manet, and my favorite composer, Gabriel Fauré. This is a solemn place in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower and not to be missed if you have an appreciation for these artists or...More

Passy, for close to 150 years, used to be a part of the town where the rich and the privileged lived, for the most part (and even more so today). At the end of the XIXth century, it was largely villas and cottages bucolic country,...More

We stopped here briefly while exploring the view from the Trocadero. It’s definitely an interesting spot to explore briefly if you end up in this area. Resting spot for several famous people but I found the various mausoleums rather fascinating all crammed into a small...More

The entrance is literally across the street from the Benjamin Franklin statue and 2-3 minute walk from Musée de l'Homme at Trocadero. If you want to escape the crowds and visit a cemetery filled with famous French personalities - then spend an hour visiting this...More

We wandered through these grounds focusing particularly on musicians and composers, and found the wandering peaceful and emotional when we recognized a particular grave. Often a recording would come back to me with tremendous power. The grounds ae very beautiful.

Cimetiere de Passy is located up the street from the Trocadero. It is worth the short walk. There is a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower. It's not a huge cemetery. If you like walking through cemeteries this one will only take an hour to...More

We had the chance to walk by the cemetery every day in our stay to Paris and very much enjoyed the architectural design. The proximity to the Eiffel Tower makes it easy to access and well worth stopping by to visit.

museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
