Best way to get to pere lachaise cemetary

I know that the #69 bus goes right to the cemetary, but can't figure out where to get on or how to transfer to that bus from the Latin quarter. We are in Paris now staying in an apartment on Rue du Four near blvd st Germaine. Does the # 69 stop near here or can we take a different bus and transfer to the # 69?

Would a metro trip work better from the Latin Quarter?

Thanks for your help.

You could walk to rue de Bac for Bus 69. The stop going east is just past blvd St-Germain.

If you ride to Gambetta and enter Pere LaChaise from the northeast, you'll be exploring down hill rather than uphill.

The bus 69 looks to be your best bet, but don't expect it to be fast. Depending upon the time of day the ride may take you 40 minutes or more. But you get to see a lot along the way.

I can't be the only one thinking of an alternative way to get there.

I think I know what you mean Pjk...some formal black private vehicle...The very best would be one with horses, but I don't think they still have them..

Bonjour, LSOK,

The following site will help you plot a route:

ratp.fr/itineraires/en/ratp/recherche-avancee

It would require a transfer.

we took a slight wrong turn from the bastille and ended up at the cemetery after maybe 30 minutes.

It was a really nice walk. Not as far as the map made it look

Other than the rain and my camera being either dropped by me or pick-pocketed, we enjoyed our visit to Pere Lachaise.
