Audio Guided Tour of Giverny: Claude Monet's House and Gardens

5/5 (34 reviews)
  • Description

On this half-day excursion, you can see the Fondation Claude Monet at your own leisure.

The tour leaves from our office near the Louvre, where you’ll be given an audio guide for the visit. After about a 1 hr. 30 min. trip through the verdant countryside, you will arrive in Giverny. You will have two hours to tour Monet’s home, his studio and vibrantly colored gardens.

Claude Monet lived with his family for more than 40 years in this Normand village. Follow in Monet’s footsteps as you visit the house, which includes the “blue sitting room,” his reading room which opens into the “pantry” where he kept tea, oil, spices and eggs. Continue on to the dining room, which houses the private apartments and one of the world’s largest Japanese print collections. 

The visit continues with a stroll through the luscious Monet garden, which was the main source of inspiration for this indisputable founding father of impressionism. During this walk, you can listen to audio guide commentary about Monet’s life, works and career. Take in the vibrant flower-lined central path, which is surrounded by roses, nasturtium, and flowerbeds of all kinds, offering a wide spectrum of color. Cross the Clos-Normand, where you will find flowers from the Far East. Finally, you’ll come upon the magnificent water garden, famous for its water lilies, weeping willows, and the celebrated Japanese bridge spanning the pond.

Mionet’s house and gardens were wonderful but Paris city vision could have been better organized. We lost time at the beginning because too many people had been booked for the tour so several had to get off. We lost additional time due to an accident. It was a shame not having the full amount of time because the water gardens, especially were magnificent

Excellent, efficient friendly service, comfortable coach journey, very good audio guide. Monet's garden is wonderful, breathtakingly beautiful. A thoroughly enjoyable day, thank you. I recommend it.
