It may seem a bit odd to recommend a cemetery but the architecture is very indicative of Paris in the 18 and 19th Century. It also demonstrates the reverence that we hold our friends and family In once they have departed. There are several recipients...More

There is a plan of the cemetery but it's only partially helpful. You need to know how the grave you are looking for looks like. Name is not enough. We managed to locate Chopin's grave by white and red ribbons but failed to find Jim...More

This is a beautiful cemetery in the city centre, split in two by a city road! Although nearly 200 years old, it is very well maintained. I paid my respects to the resting place of author Guy De Maupassant, whose stories I enjoyed during my...More

Though not as big as Père Lachaise, Cimetière Montmartre is interesting because of the road Paris' chief planner placed through it, just inches above some of its most elegant tombstones and memorials. What also makes this cemetery interesting is the amount of art that adorns...More

An interesting place to visit, some famous people have their last resting place here including Samuel Beckett (we as six Trinity College graduates had to seek him out) and Simone de Beauvoir. There are also interesting monuments to non famous people that are worth a...More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
