Visit one of the most romantic and mysterious sites in Paris on a small group walking tour through Pere LaChaise cemetery. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 25 people on this small group tour, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your knowledgeable guide.
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.

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!
