Overview

Enjoy a half-day excursion from Paris to visit Claude Monet’s home and gardens with a professional guide and immerse yourself in the world of the painter. Your visit will also include the beautiful water lily pond, with its play of colors and Monet's legendary Japanese-inspired bridge.

Admire the lush green landscapes of the French countryside as you travel by luxury air-conditioned coach to the small Normandy village of Giverny, where Claude Monet lived for 43 years. The trip will take approximately one and a half hours.

As you visit the gardens at Giverny, you will see the central pathway leading up to the house, bordered by different varieties of nasturtiums and roses, as well as the multicolored flower beds full of tulips, narcissi, daffodils, irises and peonies. Stroll through the Clos Normand Flower Garden until you reach the lavish water garden, famous for its water lilies, weeping willows and green-painted Japanese Bridge.

Take the opportunity to explore Monet's pink-plastered house where you will discover the blue reading room and Claude Monet's studio. Visit the sunny yellow dining room, where you can admire one of the most important collections of Japanese prints in the world.

At the end of your visit, take advantage of the village and the quaint gift and book shop; it is housed in what was once the studio where Monet painted the huge Water Lilies canvases.
