Père Lachaise is Paris’ great monumental cemetery, with fabulous tombs and many famous “residents” along its shady paths. Oscar Wilde’s tomb (frequently covered in lipstick kisses) is the most visited in the cemetery, but there is plenty more to see, including the tombs of Chopin, Proust, Sarah Bernhardt, Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas, Colette, Maria Callas, Edith Piaf—even Jim Morrison. In this talk Professor Lear will show you around the cemetery and tell you their stories.
