Information about flights to New Orleans

Cheap flights New Orleans

The birthplace of Jazz and the poker capital of the United States, New Orleans is truly the melting pot of the Deep South. Once occupied by Napoleon at the turn of the 19th century, the city is a diverse mix of American, French, Italian, Spanish, Latin American and African culture, and regularly ranks among the top five most visited destinations in the country.


The French Quarter

The highlight of any trip to New Orleans is a visit to the magnificent French Quarter district. This is the place to be if you want to witness grand Georgian architecture, cosmopolitan bars, renowned Old World and New Orleans-inspired cuisine, and elegant boutiques. The city's oldest neighbourhood, the French Quarter was largely built when the area was under Spanish rule and is noted for its beautiful Bourbon Street, which features various stylish bars and holds the annual Mardi Gras festival.

Don't forget to wander around the world-renowned free French Market and imagine yourself in Paris or the south of France as you sample delicious Creole cuisine and explore trendy independent retail shops while listening to live jazz. For some fresh seafood, dine at the elegant GW Fins, treat yourself to some fantastic classical French and Italian food at Irene's Cuisine, or have a scrumptious crab cake breakfast at the Meals From the Heart Café. You can also enjoy some of the best pralines in America at the Southern Candymakers before watching some live Louisiana-themed or Latin music in the bustling bars of Bourbon Street after dark.


St. Louis Cathedral

Originally built in 1718 and redesigned near the end of the 18th century and the following century, St. Louis Cathedral is also situated in the French Quarter and is one of the oldest cathedrals in the country. The building was built in the Spanish Colonial and Renaissance style, and became a minor basilica in the 1960s.


The National World War II Museum

Described as 'America's National World War II Museum', this venue attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. It showcases the role of the United States and its soldiers during world conflict, and also explores how New Orleans played a vital role in the D-Day landings by designing and testing the Higgins Boats landing craft.


The Historic New Orleans Collection

Also in the French Quarter, the Historical New Orleans Collection exhibits many artefacts relevant to the city's illustrious past, from the influence of New Orelans cuisine to manuscripts and playbills from the distinguished author and playwright Tennessee Williams.
