St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 Tour

City of the Dead

Marie Laveau   Homer Plessy    Nicholas Cage (in waiting)   

   St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 is the oldest and most famous of New Orleans' cemeteries.  On this guided private walking tour, you'll visit the "resting" places of some of the city's most noteworthy citizens, like Marie Laveau, the Voodoo Priestess, Walter Plessy, the civil rights trailblazer, and even the future resting place of actor Nicholas Cage.  You'll visit the site of one of the most famous scenes in the American classic movie, Easy Rider.

   You'll learn the fascinating reasons why New Orleans buries its dead above ground and why "you wouldn't want to touch it with a 10 foot pole."
