Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at the corner of St. Charles and Washington Avenue (get off at stop N27 if you ride the St. Charles streetcar to the Garden District). Wander through this verdant residential area of New Orleans to admire the many beautiful 19th-century antebellum mansions it's the largest collection of this style of buildings in the world. At one time, this part of the city was taken up by a few plantations. These were later broken up into the separate residential plots you see today. The streets are lined with Live Oaks, sometimes branching across roads to create lush tunnels between fine examples of quintessentially New Orleanian architectural styles. Look for scrolled cast iron fences and grand white columns. Before concluding the tour, visit one of the city's famous above-ground cemeteries, Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, which dates from the 19th century.
