  • Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

    1. Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

    Discover one of the world's first UNESCO World Heritage Sites with a visit to Mont-Saint-Michel abbey. The worship of Saint Michel was introduced on the holy mount in 708 and it became one of the most important places of medieval pilgrimage. Benedictine Monks began building an abbey here in the 10th century.   The abbey has withstood the assaults of man, time and the elements. The heroic resistance of the mount to English attacks during the Hundred Years’ War (14th and 15th centuries) made it a symbol of French national identity. Monks left the abbey in 1790 and it was listed as a historic monument in 1874. The whole site has been returned to its former glory thanks to ongoing restoration work. Explore the site with a self-guided tour aided by an information booklet and learn the fascinating history of the site entirely at your own pace.

    Minden az előre leírtak szerint működött. A parkolóba bejutással volt az egyetlen problémánk.

  • Half-Day Trip to Giverny from Paris

    2. Half-Day Trip to Giverny from Paris

    Enjoy a half-day trip to the former home of Claude Monet, one of the most famous painters of French Impressionism. Located in the tiny hamlet of Giverny on the banks of the River Seine, 50 miles west of Paris, the house and gardens were bequeathed to the Académie des Beaux-Arts by his son in 1966. They were opened as a public museum in 1980 following large-scale restoration work. Depending on the option you choose, your tour will either be guided, audio guided or at your own leisure.  Depart Paris and travel by comfortable air-conditioned coach. As there is no direct public transport to Giverny, this is the ideal way to get there. You will drive via the western districts of Paris and take the Normandy motorway as far as Bonnières. After crossing the River Seine at Vernon, continue to Giverny through the wooded plateaus of Eure. Giverny attracted several Impressionist painters in the 19...

    Would have given a five star if not so busy. Well worth the cost. However, due to the crowds and long lines, not as enjoyable as hoped.

    Amazing gardens right on top of the cliff (but nowhere near the edge!). Take the little tourist train to get there or park on the road out of town. You cannot drive to the gardens. Give yourself time to sit on some of the seats provided so you can really enjoy the views and the atmosphere. Also allow time to wander along the cliff path outside the garden - the views are breathtaking. There is lovely little gift shop hidden away upstairs in the villa. Such a pleasant change not to have to exit through a gift shop! The gardens themselves are really well-maintained and immaculate. I give it 10/5!!!

  • Giverny & Monet's Garden by Train

    9. Giverny & Monet's Garden by Train

    Some of Claude Monet’s most famous works were painted in Giverny. These include his Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge paintings. The Impressionist artist lived in Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926. On this full-day excursion you’ll travel to Giverny by train, round-trip from Paris. The garden itself comprises a flower garden in front of the house and the more famous water gardens across the road. Monet began work on the water gardens about 10 years after arriving in Giverny. Interestingly locals were originally opposed to his plans to build water gardens, fearful that the strange plants would poison the water of the tributary feeding the ponds. The flower gardens cover about a hectare and are laid out in color-themed borders. There are literally thousands of flowers in these gardens including masses of tulips, irises, oriental poppies and peonies, all with the wonderful colors...

    Monet's garden is always a pleasure no matter what time of year. The garden is peaceful no matter how many people are around. Having a service who arranged your tour and tickets prior to your visit provided great peace of mind. The times there were generous with plenty of opportunities to see the place. Many thanks.
