The final resting place of misfit geniuses. I remember all of the trouble my friends and I took going to Jim Morrison's grave but now I think I would be more impressed by that of Oscar Wilde, who attained as great a fame and notoriety in his day.

One of many cemeteries around the city of Paris famous for being the final resting spot for such well known names as Chopin, Oscar Wilde and the Doors Jim Morrison.

Be sure to spend at least a couple of hours in this beautiful "city of the dead". You could easily spend an entire day here, roaming this park-like setting with it varied array of elaborate monuments. There is nothing creepy about this place. Along with famous residents such as Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Moliere and countless others, regular Parisians rest here too.

The Père-Lachaise Cemetery has a strange history in that it was originally shunned because it had not been blessed by the Roman Catholic Church. In an effort that is both eerie and intriguing, the administrators began collecting the remains of famous public figures as a marketing strategy in 1804.Recommended for:History Buffs

Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and many more famous people are buried here. It is a great place to stroll and read the epitaphs ! Catch a metro to get yourself there in 20 minutes.

Definitely off-beat, but surprisingly peaceful and not as creepy as one might think. It's a bit out of the way, but worth it if you'd like to pay respects to some amazing artists, writers and historical figures. Also some very touching WWII memorials here as well.

Probably the most beautiful cemetery I have ever visited...with the slight yet unfortunate exception of some mausoleums having been defaced by disrespectful visitors etching directions to Jim Morrison's grave-site into them.

One of the most stunning cemeteries I've seen. I only wish I'd had more time there. It was raining on the day we visited and so that cut our stay a bit short. I was able to leave my kiss on Oscar Wilde's tomb, though, so at least there is that.

One of my favorite sights. Spread out enough that it doesn't feel overrun by tourists. Do yourself a favor and pay for the map when you enter. Easy to get lost and very hard to find some of the more famous grave sights.

Take a breather from the rush of the city and take the Paris Metro to the Philippe August station on Line 2. You'll be steps away from the gateway to this peaceful and leafy city of the dead, some renowned and some forgotten. Buy a guide map and find the burial sites of those who inspire you. A favorite is Jim Morrison, but you can also visit Moliere, Jacques-Louis David, Max Ernst, Alice B. Toklas, and Oscar Wilde.
