Located on the banks of the Mississippi, New Orleans is the most populated city of Louisiana and the most French city of the United States.

Listen to jazz sitting on the terrace of a café or in the street, strolling in Jackson Square and in the Old Square: the heart of the city beats day and night to the rhythm of the music of Louisiana. The musicians of New Orleans represent a true musical melting pot, able to play all musical styles, from gospel to jazz, blues, funk, rock and zydeco. Louis Armstrong himself made his debut at the so-called Crescent City. The famous tram passes through different parts of the city, from the most festive to the most residential. Of all its assets, it is its cultural essence that is remembered from New Orleans: museums, exhibitions, neighborhood visits and concerts … Everyone will enjoy it.

 

Louisiana, a French heart on American land, is a US southeastern state about which it is hard not to fall in love with. Between the romantic Louisiana, friendly Louisiana and musical Louisiana, travelers are soaked in the local joie de vivre all along their journey. From New Orleans to the Cajun country, epicenter of the French cultural heritage, through bayous and plantations, Louisiana invites visitors into cultural, musical, culinary and human discoveries.

The plantations with neo-classic inspired homes trace the country’s history. Jazz, blues, zydeco and other music styles of Louisiana resonate to the bayous where the region’s alligators live.

As a true hideout of a breathtaking fauna and flora of Louisiana, its watercourses go up to Mississippi. As the saying goes in Louisiana: « Laissez les bons temps rouler ».
