Join us for a stroll through the French Quarter to our oldest cemetery. Visit Congo Square and a Voodoo Temple. An international city, New Orleans is famous around the world for her history, her generosity, and her contributions to the world's culture.
What to Expect
New Orleans has survived plagues, invasion, hurricanes, and managed to develop into a culture whose roots go far deeper than the Reformation or the settling of Jamestown. But, like everyone else, we lost more than a few of our people along the way. It's how we coped (and continue to do so) that's so extraordinary. Ends at the Hermes Bar, Antoine's.
"The first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds - the cemeteries - and they're a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. Going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep.
Greek, Roman, sepulchres- palatial mausoleums made to order, phantomesque, signs and symbols of hidden decay - ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who've died and are now living in tombs. The past doesn't pass away so quickly here. You could be dead for a long time."-Bob Dylan
