Guided Tour of Père Lachaise Cemetery
Discover the stories behind the famous figures who now rest in peace at Père Lachaise Cemetery including Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf and Frédéric Chopin.
I'm a 36 Parisian girl born and raised in a village nearby Versailles.
I used to create and sell "love locks" on the famous lover's bridge "Pont des Arts" with my darling, Sed (we've been a faithful couple for 14 years).
This job revealed me a keen interest in working with foreign visitors.
When the government replaced the bridge's fences by windows I started to search for another job. I've been lucky enough to find a company's ad searching for a guide specialized in Catacombs. This is how I discovered this job.
Being impassioned by catacombs and underground heritage for 9 years, I am currently employed by several companies to lead guided tours of the Catacombs Museum. I also do day-tours of the Normandy D-Day beaches, the town of Chartres and its cathedral, walking tours of the cemetery of Père-Lachaise, themed-tours about the historical crimes and legends of Paris...
This is the dream job to me: I love meeting people from all around the world to share my passion with them.
I also love history, music, gigs, exhibitions, pubs, urban exploration...

We are glad we choose this group tour. We went inside exactly at the scheduled time vs waiting in the line and Leo's personalized commentary made it very engaging. We also had an access to parts open to groups only.
In conclusion- a bit pricey but we are glad we did it. Great memories.
