Pere Lachaise is a cemetery in the east of Paris, France most famous for being the burial place of not only Jim Morrison of ‘The Doors’ but also Edith Piaff, Chopin (without his heart), Oscar Wilde, Maria Calais, and many, many others.

The best and easiest way to get there is to take the blue #2 metro line to ‘Pere Lachaise’. One of the metro entry/exits is about 30 seconds walk form the entry to the cemetery.

Entry is free but you may want to pick up a map of the cemetery at the entry as it’s very big and a little bit of a maze.

Check out a virtual tour of the cemetery.
