What You Can Expect

Giverny and Monet's Garden Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Giverny gardens, France

Take a trip from Paris through picturesque Normandy to the quaint town of Giverny, made famous as the former home of Impressionist master Claude Monet. He and his family lived in Giverny from 1883 until he died in 1926.
Monet’s house is now a museum, and the gardens that provided him with years of subject matter are open to the public. See if inspiration strikes as you wander through his lush gardens, stopping by the famous water lily pond and the delicate arch of the Japanese bridge that Monet painted frequently.
After a visit to Monet’s home and garden, stop at the nearby Musée des Impressionnismes to see the museum’s collection of Impressionist paintings. Much of the collection is by artists who traveled all the way to Giverny when Monet was still alive in order to meet and be inspired by the master painter.
Relax and enjoy the scenery on the drive back to Paris, where your tour concludes.

This was our favorite tour and highly recommended for anyone visiting France. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel and It was a comfortable drive of about 1 hour and a quarter. The gardens were extensive and exquisite, and Monet 's home was charming and filled with his art. It was a breathtaking experience!

It was a great day! Our driver was engaging and very helpful. He added a quick visit to Monet's grave site to our day which was so nice. Loved the fact that we could wander at our leisure through the house and gardens and then return to the bus for the trip back to Paris.

Our tour guide who drove us there was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and talked on the drive of the history of France,including Jeanne d'Arc, Monet,many things. I wish I had gotten his name to give you. I would go on any tour just to listen to him, as he could talk about anything without ever going into a canned tour.
