Take your seat aboard an air-conditioned tour bus departing at 8:15 a.m. You’ll be driven to the Fondation Claude Monet, where you can visit the garden at Giverny and Monet’s home at your own leisure. See Giverny at your own pace, starting with Monet’s home. There, you will learn about the life of the artist, who lived there until his death at the age of 43. You can appreciate the reading room, also called the “blue room,” the sunflower-yellow dining room adorned with Japanese prints, and the private apartments. Continue your visit in Monet’s studio, today a gift shop where you can find a variety of souvenirs. Next, turn on your audio guide for commentary as you visit Monet’s garden. Amble through flower-lined paths that inspired the artist’s impressionist paintings. Revel in the lavish, multicolored flower beds. Step into the Clos-Normand, home to many Far Eastern plants and vegetation. Cross the water garden by the Japanese bridge. Peer over the edge to see its famous water lilies, found in the celebrated painting of the same name. Take your time as you experience Monet’s universe in an exotic, ethereal atmosphere.

The beautiful gardens in Giverny

Palace of Versailles golden entrance

Your audio commentary will point you in the right direction as you discover the King’s chambers. You will enter seven rooms, each decorated in the style of a God. Next, enter the magnificent Hall of Mirrors, where guests were invited during celebrations. The hall overlooks Versailles gardens. Admire the emblem of the Sun King, Louis XIV, one of the most ornate symbols to represent 17th century French art. If it is not the season for the Musical Fountains Show and Musical Gardens, you can take time to explore the gardens, where statues, sculptures, fountains, flowerbeds, coppices and reflecting pools are all aligned.
