This was a planned visit, I love cemeteries and try to visit as many as I can. This one is beautiful - nice long walk, many truly works of art - I adore seeing the unusual gravestones. In places like these you feel like you're...More

We took a side-trip through this cemetery on our self-guided tour of the 14th Arr. It was interesting to catch a glimpse at long history of the city. The cemetery is filled with some really interesting and old crypts. With all of the hustle and...More

If you want a minute of calm and selfreflection, this is the place to be. Everyone turns quiet when entering the cemetry. A lot of known families lie here, including Jean-Paul Sartre.

We were staying not too far away from the cemetery and decided to go for a quiet walk around Sunday morning. The graves themselves are fascinating, so much architectural variety and interesting monuments. Due to the arrangement of plots some of the more famous residents...More

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!

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

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
