I’ve never been one to haunt the graves of the famous. I’ve visited Highgate Cemetery because I used to live close by and when I had a major obsession about the Russian Revolution it was interesting to see where Karl Marx is buried but other than that I can think of better ways to remember famous people I admire etc. Not so for others though. Visiting dead famous people is quite a pastime and here are 10 of the most popular grave sites in the world in no specific order.
