Cemetary Visit - Looking for Modigliani

There are not many cities in the world where a visit to the cemetery is on the "must do" list.
Paris has such a cemetery. The Père Lachaise Cemetery is something you should not miss if you love history. It is absolutely huge and trust me when I say, you need the map. Buy it as soon as you arrive.

Even with the map we had a really hard time finding this grave.
Modigliani is one of the painters I love the most. I really, really wanted to pay my respects. I was so mad at myself for not bringing flowers.

And then I noticed someone brought something more appropriate.
Next time I will be prepared.
