Discover the diversity of cultures in the historic New Orleans French Quarter guided through its bustling streets by this in-app audio tour! First, you will learn about the decisive role of New Orleans in the War of Independence at Jackson Square. Admire the artworks by street artists, wow street performers, and, maybe, have your fate predicted by a fortune-teller! One of the city’s notable landmarks and a real mix of Greek, French, and Creole styles, is also here — the fairytale-like St. Louis Cathedral. The city’s connection with France is everywhere, from architecture to food! You may verify this in the Café Du Monde that you may stop by while walking along the mighty Mississippi River. Next, head over to the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, which celebrates the musical legacy of the city. Here, you will learn and see how Creole rituals shaped this vibrant music style. New Orleans is widely known for its unique architecture, and you will see why when looking at its colorful houses with exquisite balconies such as the Gallier House. The iconic haunted Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar will be a nice start for a walk along the bustling Bourbon Street filled with the vibes of Mardi Gras. Don’t miss the Voodoo Museum to learn about this mysterious cult! Finish the tour at the Cabildo house, the best representation of New Orleans' connection with both Spanish and French cultures. Some amazing artifacts can be found here, like Napoleon’s death mask!

It was good information. I was hoping it would be more automatic in terms of walking directions to each stop, but it was manageable. Interesting info and some spots we wouldn’t have explored on our own
