DIRECTIONS TO EXCHANGE ALLEY:
We are now going to walk back into the French Quarter toward our next stop at Exchange Alley. Head up Royal Street toward Canal Street. After you’ve gone ten blocks, turn left on Conti Street, toward the river. Walk half a block until you see a narrow pedestrian street known as Exchange Alley on your right.
