Take a photo of the map at the entrance and this will help you in navigating the cemetery. Many well know people are buried here including: Frederic Chopin, Edith Piaf, & Oscar Wilde, etc...We enjoyed strolling along this cemetery leisurely.

Had an enjoyable morning pottering around the cemetery. The weather was fantastic and we spent hours mooching around the gothic graves and stunning headstones. We found Jim Morrison who is now behind barriers; Edith Piaf and Oscar Wilde who unfortunately is now behind glass too....More

One of the most unique places to visit while in Paris. You need a good pair of walking shoes as the distances clock up while strolling through rows after rows of interestingly named graves.

A perfect place to stroll under shade-giving trees among the rich and famous of yesteryear and reflect on the purpose in life. Very peaceful and quiet here. While many areas are neat and orderly, some others are a veritable jumble to walk in-between the grave...More

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,

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
