This is a very old cemetary with many old monuments. You learn why they bury the dead above ground, with multiple persons in each tomb. Well worth the time. We met a guide at the entrance who only wanted tips for his extensive knowledge of...More

Very interesting cemetry with a variety of family plots, plot for firefights, destitute children, tells you quite a lot about the past. Do take note the gates shut at 3pm (think it was 4pm at weekends). All set in the delightful garden district.
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
