View date


Full of frescoes and anecdotes about the universe of graffiti, the Ourcq canal is a place where street artists from the north-east of Paris and other parts of the world can express themselves freely.

During this 1h30 long guided cruise, Laurent Fouquet, your guide and Fresh Street Art Tour Paris' mediator will introduce you to the art works located between the Bassin de la Villette and Body.

To name a few, as you arrive near the Crimée lift bridge, discover how Marko93 created his work Sarah, the Jaguar charmer, on the side of the barge La Grande Fantaisie, in only five days; In Pantin, the monumental portrait of the Chinese empress Dengju reveals a hidden secret at Chez Agnès, while the relaxed silhouette of Marion Cotillard invites you to relax and enjoy summer; further on, the "wall" of Bobigny has long been the testing ground for graffiti artists; finally, the fresco of Batsh "Regarde-Moi"will not leave you indifferent as you arrive near the Bondy bridge.

Your ticket also includes the rental of a deckchair and a blanket for the Outdoor movie theater.

Places and deckchairs are not booked so we recommend you to go to the Outdoor movie theater as soon as you come back from the cruise. 

Then sit down and enjoy your night and the screening at the Outdoor movie theater of la Villette.
