Of Cultural Interest in New Orleans
French Quarter
(11)
This is the most interesting part of New Orleans,here you can see the buildings built by the Spanish and French more than two centuries go. Do not forget to walk after 6 pm on Bourbon St. The atmosphere is amazing. It must be seen to be believed.

Squares in New Orleans
Spanish Plaza
(7)
In the dock on the Mississippi River, at the Riverwalk Marketplace entrance you'll find a beautiful square named after the city of New Orleans by Spain in 1976. There is a large fountain that surrounded by an inlaid bench with colored tiles that represent the shields of each of the provinces of Spain. This is a great place to relax, feel the fountain's spray, people watch, or just watch the river traffic pass by. It's the perfect location to wait for the ferry as you stroll along the Mississippi River. We were actually very surprised to find this place and we walked along the different paths, remembering our country.
Cathedrals in New Orleans
St. Louis Cathedral
(5)
Located in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans and facing the very pretty Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral is one of the main historical monuments of the city, and deserves a visit. It was built in the early 18th century and completed in 1718, making it the oldest active cathedral in the country. Its classical facade is stunning, and it's just steps from the river.
Of Cultural Interest in New Orleans
Oak Alley Plantation
(4)
The whole course of the Mississippi from New Orleans to Lafayette / Baton Rouge, the banks of the great river are dotted with plantations that can be visited or are now hotels. This is the most impressive with its row of three hundred year old oaks.
Of Touristic Interest in New Orleans
Mississippi River Steamboat Cruise
(8)
There are two companies that take people out on boat tours of the Mississippi River. The walk is 2 hours, which is a little too long, and it's $40 per person, which isn't cheap. Live music, though. There are dining options for the route. I recommend the free boat crossing the river, from the ground floor, where the cars go, there are great views of the city, takes about 15 minutes and is free. Salen next to the Plaza Spain.
Cemeteries in New Orleans
Saint Louis Cemetery
(3)
The Saint Louis Cemetery is definitely worth a visit. They have group tours led by a guide (during both day and night) that tell you about the history, voodoo legends and the famous people that are buried there. Divided into three different zones after the expansion of the city and the large number of inhabitants, it is the oldest cemetery in the city. An interesting detail is that the tombs are built above the ground to keep them above the ground water. This gives it a very interesting architecture. Lastly, it is not uncommon to see the tombs decorated with colorful necklaces.

Musicals in New Orleans
Preservation Hall
(2)
Nestled in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans, Preservation Hall seems unspectacular during the day (we passed by without even realizing it). But at night it comes alive as the most famous jazz club in the city. At number 726 Peter Street, come at 8:00 pm to see the crowd waiting patiently outside for the concert. And inside this temple of jazz, nothing has changed for decades. We sat on small benches or floor cushions, and found ourselves transported back in time by the amazing musicians. Truly a once in a lifetime experience.
Markets in New Orleans
French Market
(1)
Occupying the entire South Western French Quarter of New Orleans, just a few meters from the Mississippi, the French market is, as its name suggests, a market which proves a nice, enjoyable place to visit. You can find stalls selling all kinds of products, from fruit and vegetables to the typical Creole food of the city to Mardi Gras masks and necklaces. A great place to go for a look at some Louisiana culture!
Streets in New Orleans
Garden District
Located in the southwest of New Orleans, the most dynamic and famous city in Louisiana (not the state capital, though), the Garden District is one of the main attractions of the city, and one of the nicest as well. We love the long avenues lined with huge buildings with striking facades, although some (or even most, we must unfortunately acknowledge) had been affected by Hurricane Katrina and the flooding that followed. Nevertheless, be sure to take the time to go for a walk in this lovely neighborhood and have a look at the houses and terraces of this particularly iconic region of the United States.
Streets in New Orleans
Royal Street
Located in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, parallel to the world famous Bourbon Street and its many bars, Royal Street is one of the main streets of the neighborhood, and one of our favorites. Compared to Bourbon Street, it's quite calm, and packed with beautiful facades dating back to French or Spanish times. Don't miss the remarkable architecture.
Gardens in New Orleans
Mississipi Shore
(3)
Through the French Quarter and in particular the city of New Orleans in general, Mississippi River, the third biggest river in the world in terms of size and length, flows peacefully. We like the relative calm that it brings to the city that never seems to sleep, and also provides a pretty backdrop to New Orleans. You can admire the last steamer, and we particularly enjoyed the view from Decatur Street and Washington Artillery Park. Don't miss it.
Historical Monuments in New Orleans
River Road Plantations
(1)
Plantation Road borders the Mississippi and reaches Baton Rouge, the administrative capital of Louisiana. It's actually the road where, during the golden age of slavery, more than 400 sugar and cotton plantations stood. Now, some of these historic plantations are open to the public, so you can learn about the culture and history of Louisiana. We particularly recommend Laura Alley and Oak Alley, but there are many others. The road crisscrosses the Louisiana countryside and is surrounded by fields of sugar cane on either side. A very nice trip with an unforgettable historical element.
Cities in New Orleans
New Orleans Streetcars
(1)
Beginning on the beautiful Canal Street (as its name suggests!), the Canal Streetcar Line is a tram that has become a real icon of New Orleans, and is convenient and pleasant to use. It serves the north of the city, including the largest cemeteries in New Orleans, St Louis and Lafayette Cemeteries. It costs $1.25 for a trip (bring exact change), and is a little step back in time that you really must experience while in New Orleans.
Streets in New Orleans
Bourbon Street
(1)
The party on Bourbon Street rages 24 hours a day. Horse-mounted police march alongside dancing locals and partying tourists. There are also some good seafood restaurants serving up Louisiana cuisine in a festive atmosphere.
Squares in New Orleans
Jackson Square
Located in the southern region of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana, Jackson Square is the heart of this iconic area and the starting point for most tours. We loved this little square full of greenery and its charming central statue and fountain. We also liked the view of the city's cathedral and the small art market that brings together artists and musicians for a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere.
Musicals in New Orleans
New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park
Every Saturday at 2 pm, this is where you'll find great jazz performances by some of the best groups in the city. There are chairs and air conditioning, but it's worth arriving early to get a place because it's quite small. The show lasts until 15:30, and there are also other shows open to the public.
Squares in New Orleans
Jean Paul II Square
(1)
Strategically located between the pediment of the beautiful St. Louis Cathedral and the charming Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter, Jean Paul II Square is an unmissable stop on your tour of New Orleans. Rather quiet during the week, it comes to life at the weekend with street musicians, fortune tellers, and other enigmatic voodoo practitioners! We love the fantastic atmosphere of this charming meeting point.
Gardens in New Orleans
Washington Artillery Park
Marking the center of the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, the Washington Artillery Park is a small park overlooking the Cafe du Monde. We loved the nice views overlooking the cathedral and the town square and also the river that was flowing very peacefully. New Orleans used to be a major port in the US so there was a lot of overcrowding by boats but now it is peaceful. There are nice benches and places for a quiet picnic too.
