Guided visit of this World famous cemetery


A place visited yearly by 3 million tourists and locals alike, but also the theatre of roughly 10,000 funeral ceremonies, are you intrigued?

Once you’ve met your local guide at the exit of Metro Gambetta in the 20th quarter of Paris, you will be taken to discover the largest cemetery in the city of Paris, and one of the most famous in the world.

With over 70,000 burial plots spread over 43 hectares of gardens and of an acute architectural interest, Père Lachaise Cemetery is a unique visit that evokes several emotions: nostalgy, sadness, curiosity, respect, and amazement.

Whereas people want to ‘end up’ here the late as possible! the plots are very coveted, with a long waiting list, this can be considered as a 5-star cemetery! Its most celebrated occupant is most probably Jim Morrison, ever since his death in the summer of 1971, fans and non-fans alike have flocked to pause a moment at his tomb.

Numerous other personalities from all branches of arts, politics, culture and public figures have their final resting place at Père Lachaise, amongst them are: Chopin, Molière, Proust, Edith Piaf, Yves Montand or Oscar Wilde. The final one of this list being one of the most visited and infamous, your guide will be able to explain all the anecdotes and controversies of this and many other tombs during this 2 hour tour.
