    Very beautiful cemetery. It's difficult to find some graves, so try to use a map. Nice place to spend an hour or so and see the resting place of some famous people.

    A beautiful peaceful cemetery that looks like a park.The monuments of many deceased figures of politics or literature/poetry are pieces of architectural art. A wonderful walk without a dark ambience.

    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!!!!

    Been here 100+ times
    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.

    Have a map or you will get lost. Plans are at each entrance. A lot of famous people like Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Claude Debussy, Oscar Wilde, JeanJacques Rousseau. An hour visit is nothing here.

    Didn't look for any celebrities -- just walked along, enjoying the peace and quiet, admiring the interesting grave marks and monuments and reading the sometimes-moving tombstones. Nice experience.

    The ghost of a French prime minister is said to yank on your clothes if you get too close. But where else will I get to meet Jim Morrison's ghost? Hotel Reco:

    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.

    Wilde's grave still visible, but unfortunately cleaned from the typical kisses and barricaded by the city hall.

    At the main entrance you can get, free of charge, the 2 plans of the cemetery. Don't buy from the flower shop. Don't get only only one, as it's incomplete.
