CEMETERY TOUR OF NEW ORLEANS
Explore the elegant decay of our oldest above-ground cemetery, followed by the legendary decadence of the notorious vice district, Storyville. The first portion of this experience is the sacred space of St. Louis #1 Cemetery and the final resting place of Marie Laveau. Burial practices along with wall vaults, family tombs, and society tombs are the focus of the conversation. The second part discusses prostitution and politics in a city known for sin. This is a two-in-one New Orleans tour experience! Concludes in a fantastic downtown bar. Drinks on your own tab.
