    Organize your trip before entering. This cemetery is like a labyrinth...the risk is to waist a great amount of time with poor results at the end. Take a map!!!!

    Due to high Vigipirate level, most doors are closed. Eg: the one next to the Père-Lachaise metro. Porte de la Réunion is only open in the morning from 8h/8h30/9h until 9h30, then from 16h-17h30.

    Take a photo of the map at the entrance and then plan your route. The graves you are seeking are sometimes hard to find so don't be afraid to step into the narrow paths between the plots.

    You really need a map. I didn't find a free map at the entrance, so I took a photo of someone's map with my phone. It doesn't help much, though. Do some research on the internet before you go there.
