New Orleans Architecture Guide

By Viator, January 2018

5 54 Reviews | Add your review

One of the oldest cities in America, New Orleans has its roots in a myriad of culture. This diverse history lends itself amazingly well to different architectural styles, and for centuries New Orleans has been known as a town that boasts a stunning array of eye-catching buildings that few other cities in the world can compete with. Greek Revival, classic Victorian, Queen Anne, and others are seen on just about every block of this city, but what makes New Orleans architecture unique are the distinct styles of homes found here and little elsewhere.

Thus, taking an architectural tour of the city is a great activity for both the tourist and the local who wants to know more about their day-to-day environ. Not only will you get a rich history and architectural lesson, but you’ll also be able to get your bearings on your new host city. See what makes the French Quarter famous, learn about the difference between a “rue” and an “avenue,” and explore Creole Cottages, American Townhouses, Shotgun Houses, Double-Gallery Houses and more while winding through this amazing city.
