One doesn't usually associate a cemetery with a romantic stroll, but a visit to Pere-Lachaise begs exactly that. Tucked away in a corner of northeastern Paris, the cemetery is affectionately called "La cité des morts" (The city of the dead) by Parisians. With its rolling hills, thousands of trees, winding paths with carefully plotted "street" names, and elaborate sepulchers and tombs, it's easy to see why Pere-Lachaise is considered Paris' most haunttingly beautiful place of rest. And countless great figures have their resting places here, including Chopin, Proust or Jim Morrison. A true Paris must-see.
If you understand French, we strongly suggest you to book a guided tour with Mr Thierry Le Roi, who will show you the cemetery on a romantic and funny way. His tours are like a comedy in a open-air theater.
