Discover more about this tour

Well off the beaten path, Paris’s most beautiful and unexpected site, the 19th century Père Lachaise Cemetery, is a surprise not to be missed . On this 2.5 hour private tour your guide will take you on a visit to this often overlooked landmark in Eastern Paris.


It’s the resting place of thousands of Parisians, including many famous names. Iconic resident, Oscar Wilde, once 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 we’ll discover at this calm, yet utterly captivating cemetery. Your private guide will share stories about the most famous graves, including those of Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Chopin, and Marcel Marceau. We’ll discuss the little-known popular uprising, the Paris Commune, which occurred within the cemetery’s walls.

Highlights Generally Include the Graves of: Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Molière, The Holocaust Memorial

    We loved our tour and guide. The experience had more of a good friend sharing information via a conversation rather than a didactic experience. Worth every cent.

    My 18 year old son and I took a private tour of the Louvre Museum and a private tour of the Pere Lachaise Cemetery with Lucia and what an amazing experience. Her knowledge was beyond our expectations. She is so very kind, soft spoken, speaks English very well and by the end of our first tour with her we felt like she was extended family. We both felt like we could have spent our entire time in Paris with her. She gives great detail about the important things you would want to see on the tours and even had some pictures with her to make the experience that much better. Lucia will not disappoint you.
