Entering Normandy, you will visit Claude Monet's home, the father of "Impressionism". During this half day trip, you will discover in a Small-Group the famous gardens created by the impressionist painter, and the well-known Japanese bridge in the midst of its flowered paths and wather-lily ponds.

This half-day trip will lead you to the edge of Normandy, where you will visit the idyllic home of Claude Monet. Your small-group afternoon tour will start from Paris City Center. You will be transported aboard a luxury bus with one of our expert guides, so you can sit back, relax and make the most of your trip.

The leader of the Impressionist School lived here from 1883 to 1926, the colourful décor and pink brick facade are an intimate reminder of its former life. Once at destination in the small village of Giverny, you will have the opportunity to discover the precious collection of Japanese engravings is displayed in several rooms, hung in the marmer chosen by the master of Giverny himself. Claude Monet’s property at Giverny, left by his son to the Académie des Beaux-arts in 1966, has, after completion of large scale restoration work, become the Claude Monet Foundation, inaugurated in 1980. The huge Nymphéas studio, a stone’s throw from the house, has also been restored and contains the Foundation’s Shop.

You will also enjoy time in the gardens which have been replanted as they once were and offer visitors the “painting from nature” which Claude Monet’s contemporaries considered to be one of his masterpieces. The rectangular Clos Normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around brilliantly coloured shrubs, lies before the house and studios, offering from Spring to Autumn the palette of varying colours to the painter-gardner who was “ecstatic about flowers”. Lastly, the Water Garden, formed by a tributary of the Epte, lies further away, shaded by weeping willows. With its famous Japanese Bridge, its wistarias, azaleas and its pond, it has once more become that casket of sky and water which inspired the pictorial universe of the water lilies.

At the end of your tour and after having been driven back to Paris, you will be given a complimentary Skip-the-Line Admission Ticket to Musée d'Orsay for you to enjoy at your convenience during your stay in Paris.

Visit the small village of Giverny with a local tour guide: the home and inspiration to perhaps the most famous of the French impressionist painters, Claude Monet. Discover Monet's house; with its attractive pink façade, it is filled with reproductions of his work. In the gardens, re-planted to match Monet’s original design, you will find his studio and the lily pond, the subject of many of his paintings.

Meet your local guide for a walking tour of the village of Giverny, then enter through a special entrance to bypass the long lines to visit Claude Monet’s gardens and house. Claude Monet’s house in Giverny is a must for any modern art history enthusiast, or anyone who simply enjoys beautiful surroundings. Your tour guide will tell you the story of Monet’s life and how he led the Impressionist movement from 1883 to 1926. In Giverny, he was joined by artists like John Singer Sargent, Paul Cézanne, and Mary Cassatt. By 1887, the sleepy little village found itself somewhat of an artists’ colony. Monet’s thatched roofed house with its pink facade is surrounded by enchanting ponds and magnificent gardens, two of the central features of his paintings. Wandering through the village of Giverny, as well as Monet’s house and gardens, is like stepping inside one of Monet's paintings. The cobblestone street featured in Claude Monet's “Wedding March” has remained practically unchanged since the artist depicted it with his master brushstrokes. The same goes for the Japanese footbridge that crosses over a pond decorated with luscious lilies. Today, Monet’s house and gardens are maintained by the Foundation Claude Monet. The gardens are enchanting; from April to October, they overflow with wild roses, hollyhocks, poppies, and fragrant honeysuckle. The water lilies, weeping willows, and Japanese bridge in the Oriental Water Gardens are instantly recognizable from his classic paintings. The artist’s house features a cheerful and lively kitchen, as well as Monet's collection of 18th and 19th century Japanese prints. In the village, visitors can pay their respects to the great painter, whose grave is in the cemetery of Giverny's church.

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 that inspired Monet's paintings.

The water gardens have a Japanese theme and include a replica of the Japanese bridge which featured in Monet's well-known painting.

In addition to the gardens you’ll be able to visit Monet’s lovely and very colorful house.
