    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!!!!

    I have been there on an autumn day with a lot of fog! There was a magic atmosphere!

    Beautiful in autumn! Love this place!

    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.

    Dark graves are beautiful. Amazing photographic spot to use 50 mm lenses

    Sergio Gonçalo Rodrigues · August 18, 2015
  • Juan L.

    Look for the grave of Jim Morrison. You will find it in number 30 in this map

    Juan Llaneza · August 9, 2015
  • Ronald S.

    Almost an open air museum.

    Ronald Sampaio · August 6, 2015
  • Tmu

    Most definitely worth a visit when in Paris. Remembert o print out a map of the graves beforehand.

    Tmu · August 1, 2015
  • Shawn C.

    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.

    Shawn Callahan · April 16, 2015
  • Nina P.

    So many famous graves to see here.. It's beautiful. Give yourself a few hours and have a map! It's like a village

    Nina Poppy · March 28, 2015
  • Jenny F.

    Some really interesting graves of famous people but the divisions are confusing and its easy to get lost even with a map

    Paris's main and probably most famous cemetery. You easily get lost

  • Marina Z.

    After crowded Paris it is nice to escape with old tombs and many trees, no rush.

    Marina Zbozhinskaya · November 30, 2014

    Edith Piaf's grave is not alongside the road, it's a row back.

  • Koen V.

    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.

    Koen Van Den Bergh · September 25, 2014
  • Brad T.

    Take a photo of the map and any graves you want to visit before you start to explore - all too easy to get lost

    Brad Tubb · September 14, 2014
  • Maria T.

    This place is huge! Prepare to have a long walk if you want to see most famous graves

    Maria Tobar · September 6, 2014

    Come for Jim Morrison, but stay for Edith Piaf.

    Make sure you get a map at the administration office, main entrance.

    Jeff Hilts · July 3, 2014
  • Nico P.

    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.

    aha aha aha aha

    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:

    Roaming Gnome · October 28, 2013
  • Olivia W.

    You can see the graves of many famous artists and scholars including Oscar Wilde, Marcel Proust, Georges-Pierre Seurat, Eugène Delacroix, and James Morrison.

    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.

    periwinkle · April 21, 2013
  • Alex S.

    Big, big, BIG! Do not enter during a rainshower. Not much place to hide! But still, Very impressive.

    Alex Smid · March 27, 2013
  • Adriana F.

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

    Adriana Fattini · March 9, 2013
  • Adriana F.

    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.

    Adriana Fattini · March 9, 2013
  • Peter N.

    Many, many dead people here.

    Peter Neufeld · March 2, 2013
  • Antony F.

    Oscar Wilde is behind the glass now... What a pity(((

    Taken almost 4 years ago. Wilde's thomb.
