  • I definitely recommend buying a map if you are here
  • Unfortunately we did not have any cash on us when we were here, so we did not get to buy a map, and because of that we spent a lot of time wandering around and we only managed to find Jim Morrison‘s grave, even though we had been hoping to see Oscar Wilde‘s as well
  • Transportation is no an issue, as the subway stops very close to the cemetery

      Pere Lachaise is a huge cemetery within the city limits of Paris, France. A few of the famous people buried here are Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and Edith Piaf.

      It was so large that to find our way out of the cemetery we had to walk until we found a wall that enclosed the cemetery, we then followed that wall for quite awhile until we finally found the main entrance and were able to leave.

      I definitely recommend buying a map if you are here.

      It will make your trip much easier.

      Unfortunately


      we did not have any cash on us when we were here, so we did not get to buy a map, and because of that we spent a lot of time wandering around and we only managed to find Jim Morrison‘s grave, even though we had been hoping to see Oscar Wilde‘s as well.

      We would like to go back and try to find it again, on a nice day.

      All of the walking up and down the hills of the cemetery in the rain made it hard for us to want to ...


      • stay on that particular day.

        We expected more from Jim Morrison’s grave, as it was quite small and out of the way, but it was well-kept with flowers and ornaments.

        There were not many people surrounding his grave, which gave us a good opportunity to really look at it.

        Overall this is a lovely cemetery filled with elaborate graves and statues.

        It is quite hilly and would be quite a walk if you want to see all of the more famous graves, as they seem to be located in completely different areas of

        the cemetery, so wear good walking shoes and try to visit when the weather is nice! If you choose not to buy a map there are giant “mall” maps that will give you a general idea of where things and people are located, but we only saw one on our entire journey and had to ask other tourists for help.

        Transportation is no an issue, as the subway stops very close to the cemetery.

        Go here if you have the chance, as it is a cemetery unlike any other you will ever see.
