I have no words for the amazement I felt walking about the resting places of my favourite authors, painters, composers and many other figures.
Hint: Jim Morisson is a difficult one to find even with a map, but you just have to follow the crowds of people wearing Doors T-shirts. Beautiful.

I highly recommend Pere-Lachaise to anyone who will enjoy "grave-sighting". Its a little bit out of the city center, worth 30-45 min by metro depending where you are coming from. I went there on an early Sunday morning, it wasn't crowded at all but you can easily get lost. Also, I guess it rained the night before so some pathways are muddy.Each graves is different from one another and some mausoleums are very artistic.
One of the things that I can say wrong about this place is some grave site (Jim Morrison in particular), is a dumping ground of empty beer bottles/cans, cigarette buds and ladies undies. It was disrespectful and inappropriate. Long live Rock and Roll alright!!!!!!

Resting place of Gericault, Chopin, Piaf, Wilde, Moliere and Jim Morrison to name a few, it is a very nice spot to relax and walk around, most definitely will come back.

I can say Pere-Lachaise Cemetery is a must-see place in Paris, in particular if you are familiar with lives and works of some of the many famous people are buried there. I really like the south-east corner of the cemetery Mur des Fédérés (mostly for the historical significance).
The place is nice for a relaxing walk. I have been there with other people and also on my own, and I liked it much better when I was alone.
You should get a map at the entrance, although there is a good chance that they be out of the maps. I suggest you download the map in your phone or make a print of that. You can reach there via metro Gambetta or Pere-Lachaise to reach there.

Definitely worth visiting. You will need to buy a map or download an app if you want to seek out specific graves. Alternatively you could just wander around the maze of paths & tombstones - crowds of visitors will alert you to graves of well-known figures. It's a beautiful place and quite something to stand at the graveside of figures such as Chopin, Piaf or Wilde but be prepared to be appalled at the vandalism-in-the-name-of-love of certain graves, particularly Wilde's.
