Another unusual guided tour takes visitors around the Lafayette Cemetery and explains why the tombs are all above ground, lightened with some humorous anecdotes. The Old Ursuline Convent, the oldest building in Louisiana is worth a visit along with the Old US Mint, now housing the Newcomb College of Art and Jazz Museum. One must-do from your New Orleans holiday rental is sampling chicory coffee and beignets which the Café du Monde is famous for.
