Old Louisville is very attractive. Awesome buildings for many blocks. Did not have time to do tours but I am sure they are great. They have several tours you can choose from. 2 hrs would be ok to spend there.

My Aunt and Uncle live here - so yes, I am a tad biased. This is a nice look into the past. The homeowners are working very hard to bring back the history of Louisville. Several annual events (such as the St James Art Show) are wonderful to visit. Shakespeare in the Park is a nice time for families -... More

We just drove through as we didn't have time for any tours. This was our third or fourth trip that included Louisville. We can't wait to go back and spend time exploring this area.

This neighborhood has undergone major renovation in the last twenty five years. Once home to vagrants and broken down buildings made into multi family apartment dwellings this area has reclaimed its former glory. Houses have been restored by loving owners to showcase this historic neighborhood. Granted I pass this area on a daily basis but two of the best times... More

This is a must see for those that love old Victorian Homes and the architecture of that time. Old Louisville is a wonderful place to see, and you can drive or park and walk the scenery.

This is a must see when in the area. The architecture here is breath taking. The residents have done an excellent job of preserving the beauty of the neighborhood. There are very, very few houses that are run down. It's an amazing sight.

Old Louisville has a beautiful charm with it's Victorian homes and gardens. The architecture is lovely. Lots of the old homes have been converted to apartments for nearby Univ. of Louisville students. However, be aware that old Louisville isn't the most safe neighborhood after dark. Just use caution. You must park on the street in most places, so be aware... More

This area has beautiful old homes and are well kept. I noticed at least one is a Bed and Breakfast. The splendid fountain in the center ia a must to see and admire. Go and just do it. Don't miss out.
