Pere Lachaise Cemetary is the resting place for many notable figures from the past, such as Oscar Wilde and Edith Piaf. Discover the world's most famous graveyard when you take our fantastic tour.

Père Lachaise Cemetery Tour

We will meet next to the Philippe Auguste metro station, close to the Père Lachaise cemetery. From there it's just a few meters to the entrance of one of the most famous cemeteries in the world.

Once inside, we'll begin our two-hour guided tour during which you will delve into the history surrounding the captivating graveyard and discover the tombs of famous people such as singer Edith Piaf, actor Yves Montand, and composer Chopin. Did you know that this idyllic corner of the city is the largest green space in the French capital?

During the tour of the Père Lachaise cemetery, we will visit the tomb of Jim Morrison, lead singer of the rock band The Doors, and the tomb of the Irish writer Oscar Wilde, whose grave is completely covered with the marks of kisses.

Along the route, you will hear all the fascinating legends and mysteries surrounding one of the most enigmatic locations in Paris. Rumours abound that some restless souls have been seen creeping through the neighbourhood streets in the dead of night.

The tour will come to an end at the Père Lachaise cemetery.
