Explore the world of Impressionism by visiting Claude Monet's house and magnificent gardens in Giverny. Enjoy a break in a local café and pay homage to the master of Impressionism in the charming village of Giverny accompanied by your driver-guide.

You will leave from the Pullman hotel in Paris for a 1:15 hours journey by Minibus to Giverny. The number of participants is limited to 8 to ensure a personalized excursion with your driver-guide.

This is one of our Giverny tours which offers a unique opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Claude Monet. During your journey by minibus, you will admire the green landscapes of the French countryside, accompanied by the comments of your guide to arrive at the small Normandy village of Giverny. The artist and gardener Claude Monet lived there for 43 years, with his wife and children, until his death in 1926.


Claude Monet's Studio

You will plunge into the universe of the prodigious impressionist painter, famous for his landscape paintings such as the "Nympheas," "the Japanese Bridge," or "the Iris." Fascinated by color variations and gardening, Claude Monet designed his garden of flowers, fruit trees, and water gardens as works of art. During your visit, you will walk along the central path leading to the house lined with nasturtiums and roses of all kinds, and you will contemplate the flowerbeds: tulips, irises, narcissus, peonies. You will walk through the Clos Normand planted with many plants of Asian origin to reach the sumptuous water garden so famous for its water lilies, its weeping willows, and its Japanese bridge painted in green. You will be seduced by the atmosphere of the place. You will see the astonishing play of lights on the pond that was so famous in its paintings.

You will also visit Claude Monet's pink plastered house, which was his place of work and life for many years (interior guided tour prohibited due to the narrowness of the premises). You will discover the blue reading room, the grocery store, Claude Monet's workshop reconstructed with the furniture already on the premises, as well as his private apartments. You will enter the very modern dining room for the time with its earthenware pottery, and see one of the most important collections of Japanese prints in the world.

After your visit to the Monet Foundation, you will have free time to wander around the village of Giverny. You will be able to sit in a local café to refresh yourself with a drink of your choice or have a hot snack included in the visit. Our driver-guide will take you to finish this Normandy escapade in the cemetery where you will find Claude Monet's tomb. Our guide will share with you some information about the charming little church of Sainte Radegonde located near Monet's last resting place. You will be able to pay homage to him and thus close the parenthesis of this dive into Impressionism and the life of the undisputed master of this art.


Japanese pond

After your two-hour visit, you will return to the Pullman hotel by minibus.

There is not enough time for the tour. Walter gave an excellent history of Monet and Impressionism on trip out, but 1 1/2 hours is not enough time to visit the gardens, house, quick village and museum with admission pass. No one could finish in our group! The ride to and from Giverny is much longer than the visit and Van did not take us to our hotels. Taxi supplied if asked though. Would suggest adding 1/2 to 1 hour to the stop. And Walter could describe area a bit during Drive. His experience is fun and valuable to hear.

This was a very relaxing tour from being picked up at our hotel door and dropped off at the door. I would give it a 5- star rating if they were to allow an additional 30 minutes to the package!

Because of traffic, departure was delayed but we were given taxi service to and from hotel. Small group was very comfortable with good van and driver. Our guide did not provide any commentary during the trip as website described. Giverny was lovely and very worthwhile to visit.
