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. 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.

Picturesque place. Unfortunately there is not enough time to enjoy it. One would have wished for 30 minutes or an hour of quiet. The garden is so mesmerizing and the time goes by quickly there. The guide was ready to leave for Paris without us, we took the bus at the last second.

+: punctual departure, you can already listen to information about Normandy, Monet, etc. in the bus. There is a toilet on the bus. -: overpriced. Price for the gardens & house is 10€ per person on site. The rest of the price here is for arrival & departure only. The house and gardens are a short distance from the coach park. You will be left at the bus & can see for yourself how to get to the house as it contains only sparse information.

The convenience factor of this tour is worthwhile if you don't want to navigate trains and busses. However, the meet up was a bit confusing as there was no guide holding a sign to help us know that guide was for us. In addition by the time we arrived in Giverny and lined up to enter the gardens we had less than an hr and a half to see everything. I felt rushed. More than 5 hrs for this tour would be much better.
