Important Information
What to Bring

From Moulin Rouge, continue down Blvd. de Clichy following the signs for Cimetière de Montmartre. While it may not be the most famous cemetery in Paris (that award goes to Père Lachaise), the Montmartre Cemetery is definitely worth a visit during this Day. Paris has a pretty fascinating history as far as cemeteries go and this one doesn’t fall short.

Initially known as 'The Cemetery of the Large Quarries' (due to it's location beneath Rue Caulaincourt in an abandoned gypsum quarry), the Montmartre Cemetery was originally used as a mass grave during the French Revolution. Today, this is the resting place for many famous artists including, Edgar Degas, and the famous singer, Dalida (who will make another appearance on this Day later on).
