Dive into the heart of New Orleans with a self-guided audio tour designed for enthusiasts of history and architecture. This audio journey is perfect for those with a keen interest in exploring the legendary above-ground tombs and the rich past of one of America's most unique cities. Starting at the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, you'll traverse the hallowed grounds of New Orleans' oldest graveyard, weaving through stories of famous residents and the mystery-shrouded 'cities of the dead.' The route spans a variety of historical landmarks, from Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo to the opulent Hotel Monteleone, telling tales of voodoo queens, blacksmiths, and luxurious historic hotels along the way. You'll pass by Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar, to peer into the past at one of the city's oldest buildings, and conclude your tour at the Hotel Monteleone, a hallmark of luxury in the French Quarter. Each stop reveals a different layer of New Orleans' storied history, with captivating architectural details and local legends. As you walk the streets where the past and present merge, you'll experience the charm of old-world architecture at The Presbytère, feel the serenity of St. Anthony's Garden, and capture the perfect photo at the unique Cornstalk Hotel.
