The cemetery is huge,probably need at least 2 days to see all of it. It is the most known cemetery in France, and probably the biggest one too. Full of amazing gravestones, crypts and monuments. Many famous people are buried there - you can get...More

First, stop at the vendor outside the cemetery and purchase the map. Second, this is not a handicap friendly/ young children location because of the uneven cobblestone drives and worn paths plus occasional steps. Many of the tombs are in a state of disrepair due...More

An interesting place with several monuments commemorating those killed in international wars and air disasters. The graves of former celebrities such as Wilde, Morrison are easy to find using the plans on display, should that be the reason for your visit.

We went to see the grave of an acquaintance and found it with the help of a guide. We had a beautiful day but it was not crowded. It was huge!

Yes, the Parisans will have lunch in the Cemetery. Hint: take the bus or the Metro to the upper section and walk down the hills to the main entrance.

A historical cemetery honoring soldiers of various wars, but also housing various family graves. It reminds one of the age in which it was founded, but is alos currently used.

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
