Full description
Enjoy a half-day trip to the former home of Claude Monet, one of the most famous painters of French Impressionism. Located in the tiny hamlet of Giverny on the banks of the River Seine, 50 miles west of Paris, the house and gardens were bequeathed to the Académie des Beaux-Arts by his son in 1966. They were opened as a public museum in 1980 following large-scale restoration work. Depending on the option you choose, your tour will either be guided, audio guided or at your own leisure.  Depart Paris and travel by comfortable air-conditioned coach. As there is no direct public transport to Giverny, this is the ideal way to get there. You will drive via the western districts of Paris and take the Normandy motorway as far as Bonnières. After crossing the River Seine at Vernon, continue to Giverny through the wooded plateaus of Eure. Giverny attracted several Impressionist painters in the 19th-Century, most following the lead of the movement’s founder, Claude Monet, who lived there for 43 years. During the tour, you will visit the Master’s house, where the spectacular colors and enchanting garden were designed like a work of art. Be dazzled by the flowerbeds and plants and get a sense of the artist’s feelings and inspirations as you stand in front of the famous water lilies and weeping willows in the delightful water garden.

Excellent, knowledgeable, charming and friendly guide. Prompt departure and pick up. About 90 min each way to get there / back, with a couple of hours to explore the garden and house. Great to get the early tour before the crowds arrive. Guide can take you around or is happy to leave you to your own devices. Gardens are beautiful and well worth a trip out of Paris for.

The pickup was in time, audio guide is built very intuitively and clear, explanations that it provides are excellent. Also the guide provided some useful guidance, even that we were not part of guided tour. The site itself is beautiful, the garden and water garden are like a heaven, simply beautiful.

This was the highlight of my three-day trip to Paris. The place is so green and full of beautiful flowers. You’d want to live in that house, but unfortunately you can’t. Perfect for photo opps too. The tour guide was great too and explained things well. In my next visit, I might even stay in Giverny for a few days. It’s very peaceful and countryside like.
