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.

Our tour guide Avi is an art history professor, so he was so knowledgeable! He made each grave come alive! Wonderful!

We had a wonderful tour of Pere Lachaise on August 4, 2016! Avi was our tour guide, and he was terrific very knowledgable about the different people buried in this sprawling cemetery, and about the cemetery itself. The tour lasted two and a half hours, but you never felt the time there's so much to see and learn about in Pere Lachaise.
I highly recommend this walking tour I very much wanted to see the graves of Heloise and Abelard and also Oscar Wilde, and they were the highlights for me. Jim Morrison's grave is a big draw, though, and there are plenty of other famous and notable people to hear about. I've used Viator before, abroad and at home in the US, and I haven't been disappointed yet. Avi was a particularly good tour guide, though, so hopefully you get him!
