    Pere-Lachaise Cemetery
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Your rendez-vous with Paris’ famous dead begins in the morning at Alexandre Dumas metro station. Meet your english-speaking guide and stroll into Père Lachaise Cemetery, the city’s most visited graveyard. Spanning 110 acres (44 hectares), this cemetery houses hundreds of thousands of the city’s famous and infamous dead in tombs of varying extravagance. Hear about some of the site’s famous artists, musicians and writers that rest here such as Edith Piaf, Molière, Chopin, Proust, Delacroix, Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde. Wander through the labyrinth of graves and along stony paths to visit tombs accented in eccentricity and distinction. As you experience the haunting magnificence of the cemetery, you’ll learn tragic histories of lovers like Heloïse and Abelard – united in a single tomb in the 1817 after centuries apart – and forward-thinking women like writers Gertrude Stein and Collette. Your 2-hour tour concludes at Porte du Rèpos near the Philippe Auguste metro stop.

Our guide Georgia Darell from CityWonders on a rainy cool Saturday gave the best tour of the Pere Lachaise cemetery -- passionate, funny, putting the "late" people into their "world" -- that I have ever heard a guide do. In a past life time I used to hire great tour guides in a

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Two hours of information and tales in one of the world’s most famous cemeteries. Our guide Victoire spoke perfect English, shared fascinating and sometimes macabre stories, knew the history and took the time to ask what we were interested in.
