Holiday Highlights
Overview

Highlights / General details
Let your own ‘local expert’ unravel the mysteries of one of America’s oldest and most unique living neighborhoods!

Follow in the footsteps of historic figures as you stroll along the Mighty Mississippi, through the French Market and Jackson Square, and down the banquettes (sidewalks) of quaint streets named for saints and sinners from our European past.

Learn about the Creoles on this tour through the original city, founded in 1718 by French explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville.

See the old Quarter come to life as your guide explains its secrets and helps you understand all it has to offer - architecture, courtyards, gardens, food, music, and art.

Your tour ends at the Cabildo, built under Spanish rule in 1795-1799, and the site of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Featuring a comprehensive exhibit on Louisiana's early history, the Cabildo served as a city hall, a courthouse and a prison. It was the headquarters of the Louisiana State Supreme Court for the landmark Plessy vs. Ferguson decision.

One of the most legendary artifacts on display here is the death mask of the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. Some of his former officers schemed to rescue him from exile on the island of St. Helena and bring him to Louisiana but he died a few days before this plan was finalized.
