Stop At: Cemiterio de Pere-Lachaise, 16 rue du Repos, 75020 Paris France

Join us for a Private Tour led by native/ fluent English speakers of the Père Lachaise Cemetery.
Life, love and death have never had so much meaning as inside this cemetery. Its intriguing labyrinth of roads and dirt paths between the graves reveal a new perspective on how to visit Paris. You'll visit the graves of Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf, Frederic Chopin, Sarah Bernhardt, Marcel Marceau, Molière, Abelard & Heloïse, just to name a few. As well as the Holocaust Memorials. Learn about the artists, writers, politicians, and other remarkable personalities that are buried within the beautiful stone walls of Père Lachaise, and listen as your guide tells you about the remarkable stories and moments in history that have taken place at the cemetery itself. From a gruesome battle in Paris’s communist uprising to the hordes of Jim Morrison fans that make pilgrimages to visit the tomb of the Doors front man, Père Lachaise has seen its fair share of Parisian history.
“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.” – Oscar Wilde, The Canterville Ghost
“Time to live, time to lie, time to laugh, and time to die. Take it easy baby. Take it as it comes.” ― Jim Morrison

Lucia was very well versed in the fascinating history of both the cemetery and the individuals buried their. She was also quite patient as I tried to use my intermediate level French. I highly recommend this tour!

I have always wanted to visit Here Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, but I was unsure how to locate many of the famous tombs I would like to have visited. Also, I knew nothing about the cemetery at all, so I decided to look for a small or private tour. I definitely made the right choice! My tour was a private 2.5 hour tour led by an incredibly knowledgeable and friendly fellow named Ferit--I hope I have spelled his name correctly. Ferit met me promptly, greeted me warmly, and after a few brief introductory comments, gave me a fascinating history and background of the cemetery and compared it to a few others in France as well other famous cemeteries in the world. Ferit then walked all over Here Lachaise showing me various important areas of the cemetery (Holocaust remembrance section, for example) and where cremation ashes are spread. Furthermore, Ferit took me to MANY specific graves of historic and artistic importance (Oscar Wilde, edit Piaf, Isadora Duncan, etc.) and a few that I specifically wanted to see (Bellini, Rossini, etc.). I was a beautiful day, lovely weather, and excellent day for a tour. All in all, I highly recommend taking this tour--and if you should have Ferit as your guide, you will be in good hands!
