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.

The Monet Garden was something out of a dream! If you want to relax, unwind, and forget about everything, then this place has it all. Walking through the Garden, admiring its beauty, and if you stick around long enough I am sure you will be inspired to do something great! Monet's Garden was also very lovely and romantic.

This was a great day trip from Paris and the guide could not have been more professional and knowledgeable. The small group size allowed everyone to feel comfortable and everyone could ask questions of the guide without feeling they were holding the group back. Giverny and Monet's artist studio are worth the time and money for anyone visiting to Paris to include this trip in their itinerary.

Great trip! Loved being picked up right at our apartment in Paris. Giverny is not an easy place to get to, so this really helped.

Loved getting door to door service from out hotel to Giverny. This was our second visit and we enjoyed it equally as well as our first time. Monet's garden should not be missed as it is even more beautiful than pictures can show.

Must see. If you are a Monet follower, it just brings everything together, the art and lifestyles of the artist.

This is a beautiful location and a very informative tour. It was a hot day though when we went which made walking through the gardens and lining up for the house tour, a little constrained, very difficult for families with prams and toddlers in the hot sun. We were there in late August which was high tourist season and there were lots of people and lots of lines. We cooled down with light refreshments from the cafe. The merchandise is quite expensive though.
