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.

Giving it 4 stars only because our audio didn’t work on the tour bus while the guide was providing background info on the history of Monet and Giverny. Other than that, the tour guide was super helpful and even reiterated what she said on the tour bus because she felt bad none of our audio equipment was working on the bus. She was very nice and made the tour fun!

Worth a visit! It is nearly impossible to get here without a car, so this trip provided the perfect transportation. Great half day trip. Recommend going during the peak season when the flowers are in full bloom. I went towards the middle of September when it was colder and had less flowers in bloom.

Very organized tour, easy access meeting place, very good bus. The gardens and Monet's House are beautiful and worth visiting. The only criticism I have is the tour duration, which is very short. We would need at least 2 more hours to calmly appreciate the gardens. It was a bit rushed and this hindered the visitation and we were not able to hear the entire audio guide.
