Full description
Situated on the top of an enchanted hill called Mont Louis, the Père Lachaise Cemetery is world-renowned for its funerary art and as the final resting place for many great cultural icons. The cemetery is a surprising open-air museum of 70,000 graves, 44 hectares and 5,300 trees. 

An experienced and licensed guide who knows this labyrinth like the insides of their pockets will be there just for you. The itinerary can be easily customized and adapted on the spot according to your tastes, interests, and time. Your guide will provide a narrative of energy and passion, balancing humor with historical accuracy.

Avoid the noisy big groups and experience this unique spot in a more intimate way as your guide reveals to you the secrets and legends of past and present. This tour can be just for you alone, for your partner, for your family, or for your group of friends - and all special requests will be fulfilled.

Many celebrities are buried here, both local and international - this includes Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Isadora Duncan, Gertrude Stein, Maria Callas, Marcel Proust, Chopin, Molière, Delacroix, Piaf, Marceau, and so many more. Your guide will take you off the beaten path to visit the graves of some of the world's best, and to discover this unusual landscaped beauty.

The tour is approximately 2 hours, but the rest is up to you!
