The largest cemetery in Paris, it has been the final resting place of the rich and famous, such as Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Apollinaire, Simone Signoret and Alfred de Musset, among others. Take a walk down the cemetery as you look at more than 70,000 elaborate tombs forming a 44-hectare garden.
Loved getting to see the graves of so many influential people. Rossini, Oscar Wilde, Chopin and more. Definitely worth it to do the grave bingo.
While visiting graveyards is not high on most travel agendas, the Père Lachaise cemetery makes for a perfect afternoon with friends while you walk through its sprawling and beautiful expanse trying to locate the famous graves Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and Edith Piaf among many others. Traveller tip: Wear comfortable shoes
