This is an incredible place to visit. It's hundreds of years of Paris history located in a fairly small and very walkable area. You need to Google images to have an idea of what to expect.

Easy to spend a full day walking around this beautiful cemetery. Famous people or not the tombstones are beautiful and it has a peaceful feel. And Jim Morrison is there.

This was, by far, one of the best things we have ever done in Paris! We truly enjoyed every moment of the tour which was mostly due to the fantastic tour guide we had. Ferit, a native born and raised in Paris, was absolutely fantastic!...More

I have an overwhelming fondness for cemeteries, and this one is truly lovely. Wear good shoes, because the cobblestones are old, and download a map before you go, because we spent an awful long time in here on accident.

Some of my friends who have visited Pere Lachaise have clearly had an out-of-body experience here. I can't say that I did, but it was nonetheless a unique and beautiful place to visit. We took the 69 bus from near the Louvre to get here,...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,
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
