Pere-Lachaise student local tour !
My name is Behnaz. I am 32 and a student. We may have a lovely walking tour around Paris’ most astonishing open-air museum if you speak Persian, English, or Turkish. In 44 hectares of terrain, the Pere Lachaise contains 70,000 tombs and 5,300 trees. So you have to be an early bird if you want to enjoy all these beauties.
This tour is the ideal alternative for you if you want to avoid the crown while also wandering around the city, learning about history, and seeing a beautiful environment with many green walks, monuments, and tombs.
Let’s jump in to the history by walking around Pere Lachaise Cemetary! See bellow the presentation of my Pere-lachaise student local tour :
The Père Lachaise cemetery takes its name from King Louis XIV’s confessor, Father François d’Aix de La Chaise. It is the most prestigious and most visited necropolis in Paris. It covers 44 hectares and has 70,000 burial places. That is located in Paris’s 20th arrondissement. The cemetery resembles a shrine and an English park. Gothic graves, Haussmannian burial chambers, ancient mausoleums, and other funerary art forms are all depicted. Honoré de Balzac, Guillaume Apollinaire, Frédéric Chopin, Colette, Jean-François Champollion, Jean de La Fontaine, Molière, Yves Montand, Simone Signoret, Jim Morrison, Alfred de Musset, Edith Piaf, Camille Pissarro, and Oscar Wilde. Those are just a few of the famous men and women whose graves can be found along the green paths.
We’ll meet at Pere Lachaise metro station at 9 a.m. ( on Line 2 and 3 )
We will see some of the site’s notable painters, musicians, and authors, such as Edith Piaf, Frederick Chopin, Marcelle Proust, Sadegh Hedayat, Ahmet Kaya, Jim Morrison, and Oscar Wild, during our 2 to 3-hour trip. Visit tombs marked by eccentricity and individuality by wandering through the maze of graves and along gravel roads.
You’ll discover heartbreaking stories of lovers like Heloise and Abelard (who were reunited in a single grave in 1817 after decades apart) and forward-thinking women like authors Gertrud Stein and Collette as you walk through the cemetery’s eerie beauty. Your journey will come to a conclusion at Porte du Repose, close to the Philippe Auguste metro station ( on Line 3 ).
I’m sure you’re hungry by now, and since we’re in Paris and right in the middle of the street café district, we can have a lovely dinner while doing some additional work.
