Full description
You have heard the expression “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” Well, when you are in Paris you should do as the Parisians do. That means playing a game of boules, the relaxing activity the French like to think of as a “sport.” Every man, woman and child in France has played the game and played to win. It is as French as “pommes frites” and as amusing as a 2CV. Your playground for the evening is one of the most intimate gardens in Paris, just steps from the Louvre. You will learn how to throw the boules in the company of expert Parisian instructors, who will also provide that other essential French ingredient, a glass of wine (or soft drink if you prefer). So sign up for this amusing activity “ce soir.” It takes place every evening at 5.30 pm and requires no special equipment or experience. Just bring your enthusiasm and prepare for a laugh.

    Charming guides, great fun

    We were the only participants on the afternoon we played boules, but our two guides were delightful. While we were playing, the weather went from sunny, to threatening, to an absolute deluge. We all took shelter beneath our umbrellas and a cafe awning, finished our wine and visited. I would highly recommend the tour for anyone who wants a break from museums and monuments.

    The game was fun.

    We were picked up at the equestrian statue on Pont Neuf, but the guide had forgotten his pink vest, so we didn't find him until very late. Otherwise everything was ok.
