Jim Morrisson, Oscar Wilde, Gertrude Stein, and more
Have a walking tour in the most beautiful and touching cemetery of Europe!
I am going to take you from one famous grave to the next one without getting lost and without wasting time or energy in this labyrinth.
I will tell you stories and the secrets about this amazing and romantic cemetery. There are hundreds of celebrities. Most of them are french like the painters Delacroix, Gericault, Pissaro, but Rossini, Gertrude Stein and of course the rock star Jim Morrisson are also there. Marcel Proust, Allan Kardec, Oscar Wilde and Edith Piaf are waiting for you too.
A sunny autumn afternoon would be the perfect moment to have a walking tour in the Père Lachaise, since dozens of different tree species ornate the curvy paths of this legendary quiet cemetery in Eastern Paris.
we will meet by the main gate of the cematary and will cover the graves of many artists ( french and not french writers, poets, painters etc) such as :
- music composer Rossini
-impressionnist painter Pissarro
-the famous couple Heloise and Abelard (french Romeo and Juliet)
- singer Jim Morrisson
- music composer Chopin
- painter Gericault, Delacroix
-writer Balzac, Proust
