What You Can Expect

Paris' Pere LaChaise Gravestone Walking Tour

Famous Graves Walking Tour of Paris

Most people wouldn’t include a cemetery on their list of things to do when visiting a new city, but Paris' Pere LaChaise is different. Some of the most expensive and coveted grave real estate in the world, Pere LaChaise is home to 70,000 dead, including some of the most famous artists, writers and musicians the world has ever known.

The graves of the famous dead include the American musician Jim Morrison, Irish author Oscar Wilde, and French writers Balzac and Proust. On your guided meander through this romantic labyrinth of stones, trees and paths, your guide will point out the famous graves and hidden eccentricities that make this famous cemetery so special.

Discover one of the greatest and most tragic love stories of all time - that of Heloise and Abelard, now buried side by side after long years of separation. As we pass Chopin’s tomb you can almost hear his best-known piece, the Funeral Dirge. We’ll also find the resting place of Molière, the famous French playwright.

Join us on this extraordinary tour of Paris Pere LaChaise and hear the stories of the great people buried in this very special cemetery.

I am now finding that Viator tours are staffed with personal, professional and truly knowledgeable guides. This is the third one that I have taken.

Our guides was truly first rate both in explanation about the cemetery and the individuals interred there. I would strongly take another tour with her, as she made the experience both fascinating and memorable.

The guide was very good. She had great knowledge about the cemetery and about Paris in general.

Interesting tour. I don't think walking around the cemetery would've been nearly as cool without a guided tour. The cemetery itself is really pretty, but knowing the history of it and the people buried there made a big difference.

Alexandra was wonderful, very engaging and couldn't have been more informative or helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience, and Alexandra organised and saw us on our way to our next port of call. Would highly recommend this tour, cemetery was beautiful.
