What You Can Expect

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

Giverny gardens, France

Your afternoon tour to Giverny will take you through the Normandy countryside to the charming country village of Giverny, where Monet lived with his family from 1883 until his death in 1926. It was here in Giverny that Monet indulged his love of nature, in his painting, his gardening and his photography. You'll be able to stroll through Monet's exquisite gardens and admire the water-lily pond and famous Japanese bridge which featured in his masterpieces. Independently explore the house and gardens to get a real feel for how Monet lived and what provided the inspiration to his works.

The final stop on your artists' tour before returning to Paris is a visit to the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny. The museum houses a number of works by American painters who traveled to Giverny to meet Claude Monet and draw inspiration from his Impressionist techniques.

An excellent afternoon trip to Giverney and the Garden. Picked up from the hotel early afternoon and a fast route to Giverney with our Guide and driver Nicholas providing information about Giverney and Monet and the gardens on the way. Just four of us on the tour that afternoon, which was a nice small group and we all stayed together to look around the gardens and when in Giverney. When we arrived the place was busy but Nicholas dealt with all the entrance requirements quickly and calmly and had given us useful guidance on the best way to see the gardens and exactly where to meet at the end of the afternoon. The gardens were wonderful - even better that I had expected - and although very busy there was still a calmness to appreciate this rather special place. It was a fairly quick look around the house and a brief look around the gallery in Giverney. Our group had stopped for refershments after the gardens and the house so could have had more time in the gallery. As we left Giverney Nicholas asked if anyone was in a hurry to get back to Paris. As no one was he drove us back through the countryside and villages pointing out many things along the way. This was a very well organised and relaxed and enjoyable trip and Nicholas could not have been a better Guide - would definitely do it again and certainly recommend it to anyone.
