I’ve been by this place many times. I guess if you are into architecture, it has appeal but that’s not me. I think it looks out of place in the surroundings. For most of 2017, it was undergoing renovation. It looks like that is mostly...More

We had toured “around” Piazza d’Italia, on our previous visit, walking past it, on three sides. Unfortunately, it was completely fenced in, for, what appears to be, total restoration. Though we only walked two sides on this trip, 6 mos later, it does not appear...More

Accross the road from our hotel. Went for a short walk but found the site fenced off. Outside of building structures made to resemble old Rome I am not sure what the real attraction is.

Beautiful piazza but it sits idle for most of the year. It is only used for social gatherings of Italian-American New Orleanians. Would be a great venue for outdoor concerts.

It's a decent outdoor space, but as usual, it was not being used, and looked like it never has been in a long time.

This is an interesting public space, but it is a bit sparse. There was no one there when we passed it. Though it is nice to have a piazza in NOLA.

Still waiting to see if a show or music is played here. Outside theater maybe? It does look like it's all fenced off now.

I stumbled onto this little piazza by accident. It was all locked up except for one entrance and was basically deserted. It appears to be a recreation of some Italian architecture but looks rather rundown. I wouldn't bother with it unless you happen to be...More

Not many people know that Piazza d'Italia is a very famous architectural project of Charles Moore. It became one of the icons of postmodern architecture in 70. years of XX century. The project is interesting as it appeals to the imagination of simple people, not...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
