    What to Expect
    Join us on a picturesque walk where you will learn the fascinating history of the Père Lachaise Cemetery; from its origins as the country house of the king's confessor, to its role as a battlefield during the Napoleonic Wars, through to a stint as an execution ground during the Paris Commune, to finally becoming the most romantic and famous cemetery in the world. With a knowledgeable guide on hand to answer questions and highlight the stories and anecdotes hidden in this beautiful garden setting, you will visit the tombs of some of the most influential and diverse characters in history, including Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, Chopin, Edith Piaf and Molière. Spend some time away from the crowds and join us on what is arguably the most spiritual and memorable walk in Paris.

    It's a beautiful cemetary and well worth it. Besides the famous people buried there (Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Chopin, etc) it's like walking through a museum. So many beautiful mausoleums, statues, etc.

    We learn a lot about Pere Lachaise and the famous (& less famous) people resting there. Samantha was great. Worth it. We are glad we had a tour guide, as it was very interesting.
