Full description
The Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris’s largest cemetery, is probably best known to foreign visitors as the final resting place of James Morrison, the lead singer of The Doors. To Parisians, it’s also known for The Communard’s Wall where the last insurrectionists were shot at the end of the Commune's (another French revolution) “Bloody Week.”

On this walk with Fred, you’ll pay your respects to the likes of Guillaume Appolinaire, Marcel Proust, Molière, Chopin and Oscar Wilde, who died in Paris in 1900. Each year, Père Lachaise Cemetery welcomes over 3.5 million visitors, making it the most visited cemetery in the world.

Oscar Wilde wrote, “Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.” And peace is what you’ll encounter at this calm, yet utterly captivating cemetery.
