Why locals love it
Montmartre Cemetery is a pretty and intimate cemetery nestled below the main thoroughfare around the base of Montmartre. It has a number of famous graves, including those of Dalida, Jacques Offenbach, Maxime du Camp and the family of Emile Zola (his body has been moved to the Pantheon).
Why you should visit it
In contrast to the more popular Pere Lachaise Cemetery, Montmartre Cemetery is often quieter, and you can spend peaceful moments sitting beneath the trees, strolling its avenues or tracing the histories of the local Montmartrois.
Look out for the grave of Adolphe Sax, the man who invented the saxophone. Guide maps are available on the left as you enter.
