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.
