Travel Guide to New Orleans

What a beautiful and evocative city New Orleans is. The biggest city in the state of Louisiana, New Orleans has a cultural heritage that dates back to the 18th century and it’s French settlers, and that French influence is still strongly felt today. The style of the city is unlike anywhere else in the USA, with many wonderfully designed buildings, especially in the French Quarter, home to Bourbon Street and some of the finest jazz and blues clubs anywhere.

The atmosphere of this area of the city is sultry, sensual and steamy, which is added to by the subtropical climate and its humid hot summers. New Orleans is a Latin love affair – hot and passionate.
