April in Paris is so last century. Let’s try October. Halloween isn’t really a French holiday and celebrating it is somewhat controversial. But Paris has the style and ambiance for a spooky celebration, starting with the city’s famous cemeteries.
Pere-Lachaise is the final resting place of French writers, painters and poets, including Balzac, Molière and Proust, as well as expired expatriates Richard Wright, Oscar Wilde and, most famously, Jim Morrison.
Lachaise gets all the press, but the Cimetière de Passy is hauntingly beautiful.
Almost any Parisian street corner can seem like a scene from a movie – thriller, romance or horror. It depends on your perspective.
Unfortunately, tourists in the mood for a real scare cannot currently visit the City of Light’s eeriest attraction.
Have you always wanted to go to Paris? As part of TripAdvisors joint venture with UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre, we are sponsoring a contest. Enter to win, and you, too, could be walking the rues – and alleyways – of Paris.
And you don’t even have to go in October.
