Interested in checking out the final resting place of Frederic Chopin? How about Oscar Wilde's lipstick-smeared sepulcher? Edith Piaf pique your interest? Aside from a circuitous array of picturesque alleyways, quaint trees and impressive mausoleums, the history embedded (literally) within the walls of the Pere Lachaise Cemetery makes it one of Paris' most treasured, if sometimes under-emphasized, landmarks. Leave it to the City of Light to make even a daylight stroll though a graveyard seem cool. Print out a map online, pick one up at the front entrance (they're available for a nominal fee) , or challenge yourself to a treasure hunt as you peruse the somber yet inspiring headstones in this one of a kind, scenic necropolis.
Location:16 rue du Repos, Paris
