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

Take a day trip to Giverny to see firsthand the garden that led Claude Monet to paint so many of its scenes. Tour the master’s former home, now a museum, and explore his beautiful gardens at your leisure — the water lily garden is particularly famous. Visit the nearby Musée des Impressionnismes to see more great works of Impressionism. This half-day small-group tour from Paris is unguided, which means you get to see Giverny’s attractions at your own pace. Pick-up and drop-off from your central Paris hotel and transport are included.

  • Combined small group afternoon tour to Monet's house and garden and Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny
  • Walk through Monet's inspirational garden at your own pace
  • Independently tour the house and workshop where Monet lived and worked

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 inspiring subject matter are open to the public. Visit the master’s former home and see if inspiration strikes as you wander through his lush gardens. See 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. Many of the art in 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 great man.

Relax and enjoy the scenery on the drive back to Paris, where your tour concludes.

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.

Travelled to Giverny on 14th October. Great tour! Comfortable transport. Our guide Natasha was excellent. Friendly, informative, helpful and a great driver! We were able to spend approximately 2 hours at Monet's garden which was about the right amount of time for us.
