The burial place of Calvin

Today I read in Wikipedia that Big John did not get the unmarked grave he wanted.

"John Calvin died in Geneva on May 27, 1564. He was buried in the Cimetière des Rois under a tombstone marked simply with the initials "J.C.", partially honoring his request that he be buried in an unknown place, without witnesses or ceremony."

Would it dishonour his wishes to visit it?
