The Countryside in Paris

Most guidebooks will include the Pere Lachaise cemetery in the 20th arrondissement as a place to go. You can visit the tombs of Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt, Isadora Duncan as well as the hundreds of other good and great (see

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%A8re_Lachaise_Cemetery for a listing). When you are done, hop back on the metro (line 3) for one or two stops to the Porte de Bagnolet, take the boulevard Mortier exit and climb the stairs on the rue Geo-Chavez. A few hundred meters from the ring road, with rather unsightly modern apartment blocks in the background, is the Village de Charonne, a true island of calm and bucolic tranquility, or as it is called, the Countryside in Paris.
