What You Can Expect

Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour

Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour

Once in Vernon visit the charming farmers' market to buy picnic supplies. You'll then hop on your bike and pedal across the river to a beautiful park along the banks of the Seine for lunch. At lunch you can also sample the local's favorite drink: cidre.

It will then be time for your relaxing 5 kilometer (3 miles) ride down the bike path to the village of Giverny and the world-famous gardens of Claude Monet. Cruise past the Giverny church and its cemetery containing graves of local citizens dating back to the 17th century, British soldiers from World War II and even Monet himself buried within his family's vault. You will pass the Hotel Baudy, where Impressionists Manet and Renoir used to paint.

Shortly you will arrive at the highlight of the day - Monet's Garden

Spend about 1.5 hours enjoying Monet's gardens, his house and the famous water lily pond where some of his most famous works originated. Be sure to bring your camera and plenty of film! Additionally, the village of Giverny offers you the American Museum of Art (across the street from Monet's Gardens), numerous cafes and small streets begging to be explored.

Absolutely the best! We had such a fun, peaceful, relaxing and interesting day. Anna our guide was a delightful, American girl who constantly looked after everyone to the best of her ability. The picnic beside the river was special and the bike ride to Monet's Garden was delightful.

Our trip to Giverny and Monet's Garden was one of the highlights of our Paris vacation! Our tour guide, Annya, was excellent and made the trip informative, safe and FUN! We were fortunate to be in Vernon on market day and able to buy our lunch provisions from local vendors before heading to a beautiful overlook on the Seine River for our picnic lunch. Our relatively easy ride to Giverny gave us a glimpse of the beautiful French countryside and lovely villages along the route. Even though we were there at the end of September, Monet's garden was still beautiful with many flowers still in boom. Great trip overall!
