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.

me and my friend enjoyed the tour it is well worth the visit our guide Linda was great she made it a great day
without her we would not have found the most of the graves we seen

The guide was terrific! He shared the history of the cemetery, but not in 'cold facts' but in anecdotes. The group was quite small and he was very engaged and personable. We are recommending this tour to all our friends.

Excellent tour guide. Very informative and fun. Highly recommend.

Such an experience. To find out the history of the place plus visit the final resting place
of so many famous people. My partner is French and to visit the grave of Piaf was a standout
moment of the tour. For me, although touched with sadness over the events that led to his death, I
was humbled to see the grave of Jim Morrison. Again, thank you Viator for such a great way to
learn about this incredible part of Paris

Visiting Pere La Chaise Cemetery is like strolling through an outdoor museum filled with beautiful and unusual works of art. The tombs and monuments are truly works of art. A great way to spend an afternoon.

Excellent, very informative and interesting.

This was easily one of the top highlights of our Paris trip this July. We took a guided tour of the cemetery and our guide - Alessandro I think his name was - was not only very knowledgeable but also very enthusiastic and charming. Aside from telling us about the rich histories of the cemetery and the famous and not-so-famous graves, he also entertained us with charming little anecdotes of the cemetery. All together, it was a great tour and if we visit Paris again next summer, we will definitely take another guided tour and preferably with the same guide!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015
