What you can expect

Yes - I'm taking you on a tour through the cemetery. But like everything in this city - it's not an ordinary graveyard. It's an open museum and the most visited graveyard in the world!

We will walk through the alleys of sculptures colored with time, beautiful monuments covered with mysterious and interesting stories that I will tell you all about it. We will see the graves of some of the most renowned minds in the world, and how people still pay respect to them.

Pere Lachaise cemetery is the biggest garden-cemetery in Paris and it's one of the most visited places in the city after Eiffel tower. But it’s still a hidden gem; despite around 3.5 million visitors a year this garden is a quiet place and not so crowded. A perfect place to hear amazing stories of how these brilliant people changed the world.

Find out all about this famous cemetery: why does it has so many famous people buried there, the rules for burying on the 19th century, which grave is the most visited, and many more insights!

I will show you remarkable pieces of art, tell you mysterious stories and let's hope we don’t see any ghost!

Tip: Wear comfortable shoes, the surface is rocky.

Let me know if you're interested in any particular story from the graveyard or surroundings, I can easily create a personalized offer for you.
