Found a good day weatherwise in my neighborhood Montparnasse to visit the cemetery.

One of the main larger & older cemeteries in Paris, lots of famous / infamous folks have made Cimetiere Montparnasse their last home:
Jean Paul Sartre, Alfred Dreyfus, Baudelaire, Becket, Man Ray, some American film stars, Petain, etc.
All the graves are marked and locations shown on large displays in at least 2 different sections. Admission is free.

It was a very peaceful, quiet fall day and well worth the trip.

Lots of info here: Cimetierre Montparnasse Wiki

Address: 33, av du Maine, Paris, France 75014
Directions: Metro Edgar Quinet or Gaite. Best entrance is the north side from blvd Edgar Quinet. Sartre grave is just inside this entrance to your right along the wall.
