We all do lots of things when we’re on vacation that we don’t normally do at home – that’s part of the fun of being away from your ordinary routine. One of the things many people do when they’re abroad is visit cemeteries. If you’re one of those people, there are several great cemeteries in Paris that are well worth visiting – and you might be surprised at how many famous people are buried in Paris. Here are the ones we’ve covered on the Paris Travel Guide – check back for more to be added in the future.
Pere Lachaise Cemetery – Perhaps the most famous cemetery in Paris, where you’ll find Jim Morrison’s and Chopin’s graves, among many others
