Spread across 44 hectares, the Père Lachaise Cemetery is really a museum outdoors. Since the cemetery is the final resting place of many famous people like Honoré de Balzac, Sarah Bernhardt, Colette, and more, over 3 million people visit the cemetery each year. On this tour, you will have a local Parisian guide to tell you all about the many star-crossed lovers that are buried here and the history of the cemetery itself. With sites like the Tomb of Héloïse and Abélard, Oscar Wilde’s tomb, and Victor Noir’s effigy, you are bound to find yourself immersed in the idea of love and its many complexities at the end of the tour.

In the City of Love, the Père Lachaise Cemetery is a must-visit. In addition to hearing details of the love stories of many famous people that are only privy to the locals there, the tour will also help you understand why the French don’t consider topics of death and sex taboo. In Parisian style, you will get to see how each gravesite is marked uniquely; be it the weeping willows by Alfred de Musset’s grave, the lipstick marks on Oscar Wilde’s tomb or the madeleines on Marcel Proust’s tomb placed there by the writer’s fans.
