Description

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. Tour the oldest building in the Mississippi Valley, the Old Ursuline Convent, constructed by French Colonial Engineers under the auspices of the crown and completed in 1753. Over the centuries, this building has been a convent for the Ursuline Nuns, a school, an archbishop's residence, the archdiocesan central office and a meeting place for the Louisiana legislature.

Included in this tour is St. Mary's Church, completed in 1845, which has served as a center of worship for the French, Spanish, African Americans, German, Irish and Italian communities.
