A Walk Among the Tombstones

One sunny winter afternoon in Paris, I took ‘a walk among the tombstones’. I just watched that movie last night so I thought it was an appropriate title for my post. When I need some calm one of my favourite places in Paris is the Père Lachaise Cemetery. Even though it is the most visited cemetery in the world, it is still a wonderful place to visit when you need some peace and quiet.

The Père Lachaise Cemetery is the largest in Paris and is where many famous people are buried like Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf, Jim Morrison etc. Visiting a graveyard in Paris may not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you’re looking for something other than museums, shopping and macarons, I would recommend it. Just remember to wear comfy shoes as you’ll end up walking a lot!
