Bocce or Italian bowling is an ancient game originating from the Roman Empire. Thanks to Italian immigrants, nowadays it is enjoyed in different corners of the world, including Boston. Langone Park in the North End of the city hosts three bocce courts. Visitors are welcome to watch professionals play, and also partake themselves in a round or two during the season betwee​n April and September. If you don't feel like doing any sports, you can simply watch the Italian game with some delicious cannoli—an Italian pastry is sold in this neighbourhood.
