      About this Savannah, Georgia tour

      During the Civil War, Atlanta may have burned, but Savannah was spared such a fate. That's because Union forces considered the city too beautiful to ruin, with its magnificent architecture, charming gardens, and boulevards lined with intertwining live oaks draped with Spanish moss.

      Modern Savannah is just as breathtaking, with its myriad of architectural styles that have become a part of the city's 300-year history. Discover Federal, Georgian, Gothic and Greek Revival, Italianate, Regency, and more, but what may fascinate you most is the intricate ironwork found throughout the city. Scrolled designs are on many buildings, cast-iron balconies, stair railings, and window guards. You'll notice it in Savannah's squares, in fountains and gates.

      As you stroll beneath a canopy of urban forest, your guide will regale you with stories of the original settlers, pirates, Civil War soldiers, and even some more modern characters that enjoyed Savannah's grace and beauty over the centuries. And that's what brings this tour to life.

      Now that's some bad karma.

      Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil's Jim Williams bought the historic Italianate mansion, Mercer House (now the Mercer Williams House), and restored it to its former glory after it sat abandoned for a decade. In 1981, he shot and killed his lover, a male prostitute, in the foyer. After four trials spanning 10 years, Williams was found not guilty of the crime. Six months after the final verdict, Williams died suddenly in the same room where his lover was killed.
