Full description

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 19th-Century, most following the lead of the movement’s founder, Claude Monet, who lived there for 43 years. Visit the Master’s house, where the spectacular colors and enchanting garden were designed like a work of art.

Be dazzled by the flowerbeds and plants and get a sense of the artist’s feelings and inspirations as you stand in front of the famous water lilies and weeping willows in the delightful water garden.

We travelled on a nice day and Giverny is well worth visiting. My advice is to listen to all of the audio guide on the bus on the way there then leave it in the bus and listen again if you want on the way back. Listening on the way there is useful. The check in process was slow and so have patience. We went first to the water gardens which was a good idea as it became busy.

It was a nice visit to Monet's house and gardens. The transport time was about 1 hr 20 min each way, so it leaves you with about 1.25 - 1.5 hrs to explore the gardens, house and gift shop. The gift shop had a long line, so make sure you leave enough time if you want to buy things. The gardens were beautiful!

Alexandra was professional and personable, the bus was very clean, time allowed at Monet’s house and gardens was just right for us, though real garden lovers may need more time. Additional electronic materials with headsets were a great addition to the tour, allowing us to learn more about Monet and the Giverny area during the bus ride as well as on the property. It should be noted that the gardens are at their peak in spring, so our August tour meant that the gardens were less colorful, though still beautiful.
