Paris' Pere Lachaise Gravestone Walking Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Your rendez-vous with Paris’ famous dead begins in the morning at Alexandre Dumas metro station. Meet your guide and stroll into Père Lachaise Cemetery, the city’s most visited graveyard. Spanning 110 acres (44 hectares), this cemetery houses hundreds of thousands of the city’s famous and infamous dead in tombs of varying extravagance.

    Hear about some of the site’s famous artists, musicians and writers that rest here such as Edith Piaf, Molière, Chopin, Proust, Delacroix, Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde. Wander through the labyrinth of graves and along stony paths to visit tombs accented in eccentricity and distinction. 

    As you experience the haunting magnificence of the cemetery, you’ll learn tragic histories of lovers like Heloïse and Abelard – united in a single tomb in the 1817 after centuries apart – and forward-thinking women like writers Gertrude Stein and Collette.

    Your tour concludes at Porte du Rèpos near the Philippe Auguste metro stop.

    Pere Lachaise cemetery is massive and hard to navigate. If you plan on going you should definitely get a guided tour. If you're lucky you'll get Georgia. We learned so much and had a great time under her expert care. I knew I wanted to...More

    Great tour. Victoire is an excellent guide. A Born storyteller! Great stories about the (famous) people who are burried there and some history of Paris. If she had been our history teacher we would have loved history lessons. 😃

    I was solo and seem there was no limit to participants. The group itself was not more than 12 people but I guess this is planned by the tour organizers since you have to walk all through the cemetry. I booked through Viator... More
