Description

Père Lachaise Cemetery on the eastern side of Paris is a beautiful graveyard and the resting place of some of the most famous artists, writers and musicians of all time. Along with your guide, explore the peaceful site and see the graves of Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and Chopin, to name but a few.

Meander through this labyrinth of stones, trees and pathways as your guide points out the famous graves and hidden eccentricities that make this place unique. Oscar Wilde's tomb certainly stands out; it's covered entirely with bright red lipstick marks from visiting admirers.

Discover one of the most tragic love stories of all time – that of Heloise and Abelard, who are now buried side by side after long years of separation. As you pass Chopin's tomb, you can almost hear his best-known piece, the “Funeral Dirge.”

Gertrude Stein, Balzac, Proust, and Delacroix, among others, wait in the hidden corners of the graveyard, and the many stories provided by your guide are sure to make Père Lachaise a memorable stop on your Paris visit.

Our guide Georgia was a great guide, she has so much information and is quite the character. She had us all entertained and enthralled. Had a wonderful time!

The cemetery itself is absolutely amazing, an I am sure that the tour is lovely - but it was cancelled the night before the tour, so I just went to the cemetery and wandered myself. So, while I can't rate the tour (I am sure it would have been great, but unfortunately I won't know that...) the cemetery is totally worth a visit!
