What to expect

The greatest names in French cinema can be found in Père-Lachaise, which is also frequently used as a film set.

For 2 hours 30, explore the Père-Lachaise cemetery through the lens of cinema, along a 2-kilometer route. Numerous figures from the silver screen are buried here, starting with one of the pioneers of film trickery, Georges Méliès. Sarah Bernhardt, Michel Legrand, Anna Karina and Simone Signoret are also buried here.

The cemetery is a place of remembrance, but also a place to stroll, in a setting that has inspired international filmmakers such as Truffaut and Verhoeven.

The guided tour is free for children under 14.
