Full description
The departure will be at 7:45 AM from a centrally located agency. It will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach the idyllic location, the lovely Norman village of Giverny. Discover the place of inspiration where Claude Monet, master of the Impressionist movement, created his most beautiful works.

By visiting the artist's house and gardens, still in its original look, you will let yourself be carried away in Monet's imagination. The house, pink and green outside and full of color inside, and the two gardens, covered in flowers from spring to autumn, are themselves an exceptional work of art.

When crossing the Japanese bridge inside the water garden, you won’t miss the famous water lilies and the majestic weeping willows decorating the charming pond. In the paths of the Clos Normand (the Norman enclosed plot), the flower beds will dazzle your eyes with their endlessly varied colors and will lead you to daydream and romanticize.

Then, if you select the option, savor a 3-course lunch in an old mill on the river bank at Fourges and enjoy traditional Norman cuisine After lunch, stride along the streets of this charming little village, and stroll through the painters' and sculptors' galleries. Complete your day by having a painting experience with a local artist. Design your own Impressionist artwork before returning to Paris filled with wonder by the sweet life of the Impressionist Normandy.
