We had to go there to see Jim Morrisson's tomb which we did but we were very disappointed because there is a gate around it. While we were walking, we also discovered that the cemetery has memorials for the WW2 victims of the Holocust. Great...More

This was my second trip to the cemetery, the first being in 2007. Many things have changed and the monuments must have been in jeopardy. You can no longer kiss Oscar Wildes grave but you can still rub Viktor Noir's nub and nose for fertility....More

So we wandered into the cemetery following the recommended path in the Rick Steves Paris guidebook. This was a good plan, but not ideal. While looking for the suggested gravesites a very eccentric tour guide glommed onto us. For better or worse. It made for...More

If you're going to photograph the tombs, or if you just intend to walk the whole thing, its huge. And apparently something of a draw for the folks wearing all black with full body tattoos and lots of metal sticking through various parts of their...More

It is a long drive out to see it and if you are a music or literature fan this is probably why you are going to a cemetery in Paris. Wilde's site is more impressive than Morrison's. Not a must see but if you have...More

A beautiful walk among ancient tombs where many famous people are buried. We had a fun 1/2 day on a hunt to find the graves of great musicians, composers, artisits, etc.

I went to the cemetery after a technical excursion, so I was wearing large boots on a very sunny day. I was therefore very exhausted when I visited the cemetery, but i's nonetheless a nice place, pretty much like a park in some areas. I...More

Huge cemetery used from 1804 to present day. The map is available from the office (not well advertised) and the grave numbers for famous people differ from those on the map on the board. It's a bit like an adult treasure hunt to find some...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

I saw some people being guided about, but I never saw a place where you could get one on site. What I would recommend doing if you cannot find a guide is to research the cemetery, find out which graves you wish to see in... More

So in 2007 my husband and I visited Paris for the first time. One of our days took us to this cemetery where we met an awesome dude giving tours on his own. He was an older guy with long hair wearing a Jim Morrison tshirt. He kept saying "come on baby light my fire" as he toured us around. Well we are headed back in about 2 weeks and I was wondering if anyone has seen him around recently? We are hoping to bump into him again as he was such a delight!
