A walk through Père Lachaise
In eastern Paris, the Père Lachaise district is on one of the city’s seven hills in the 20th arrondissement. When you stay in your cheap hotel near Père Lachaise, you’re clear of the hordes of tourists that gather in other parts of Paris. Families are particularly fond of the district for its peaceful atmosphere. Make use of your location to delve into the cosmopolitan ambiance of the Belleville district: it has a market, plenty of boutiques and a number of East Asian restaurants. When the sun has set on Rue Ménilmontant and Rue Oberkampf, visitors are welcomed with open arms into its many bars and cafés (which sometimes double as music venues). As you wander through the streets, you’ll also spot lots of artists’ studios. These offer a vivid reflection of the contemporary art scene and have regular open days.
This 44-hectare cemetery is the biggest in Paris, and also the most popular. The land was bought by Jesuits in the 17th century and was originally a nursing home. King Louis XIV’s personal confessor, François d’Aix de La Chaise, stayed there and even lent the site its name. It became a burial ground in the early 19th century. Designed in an “English garden” style, the cemetery is known for its lovely tree-lined pathways (which are great for strolls) and its vaults built in many varying styles from Gothic to Ancient. Of course, people also come to see the tombs of illustrious men and women such as Balzac, Chopin, Colette, La Fontaine, Molière, Yves Montand, Simone Signoret, Edith Piaf and even Jim Morrison.
