Look for the Frédéric Bartholdi grave in small side cemetery- he built the Statue of Liberty. Loved this area, quiet with so many varied graves and sculptures. Fascinating!

Really peaceful and interesting place. If you want to think... go there. But this stupid Montparnasse tour is visible from everywhere.

It may seem a bit odd to recommend a cemetery but the architecture is very indicative of Paris in the 18 and 19th Century. It also demonstrates the reverence that we hold our friends and family In once they have departed. There are several recipients...More

There is a plan of the cemetery but it's only partially helpful. You need to know how the grave you are looking for looks like. Name is not enough. We managed to locate Chopin's grave by white and red ribbons but failed to find Jim...More

There are 3 great cemeteries on the fringe of the city of Paris; Montmartre, Pere Lachaise and Montparnasse. The main difference with Montmartre in comparison to the others is that it is flat. Very flat. Whereas the others have slopes, built up sections and commanding...More

This is a beautiful cemetery in the city centre, split in two by a city road! Although nearly 200 years old, it is very well maintained. I paid my respects to the resting place of author Guy De Maupassant, whose stories I enjoyed during my...More

Some of my favorite people are buried here: Tristan Tzara, Man Ray, Marguerite Duras, Charles Baudelaire, Jean Seberg, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, et al. I prefer visiting this cemetery rather than Père Lachaise - it's flat (yay! - PL is so hilly), it's laid...More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
