Your tour starts at a central location in Paris, where you'll receive your audio guide for your visit to Monet's House and Gardens. Then board the bus for the 1.5-hour drive from the city to Giverny.
When you arrive, you have two hours of independent time to explore Monet's studio, home, and vibrant gardens. Monet lived here with his family for more than 40 years, working on some of his Impressionist masterpieces. Inside, you can see his kitchen, sitting room, reading room, dining room, and bedroom, plus admire his collection of Japanese prints, which provided him inspiration.
Outside, stroll around rows and rows of flowers—from roses to nasturtium to blooms from East Asia—and visit the water lily pond and Japanese bridge, surrounded by weeping willows. This is a scene you'll probably recognize from some of his paintings. Throughout your self-guided tour, listen to the audio guide for commentary about Monet's work and life.
When your time is up, you'll be returned to the starting point in Paris, where your tour ends.
