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.

Monet's garden is wonderful! It was an adventurous experience to visit it and the house. It was easy to travel by bus t/r. Very comfortable way to get back and forth to Giverny. The drive took approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes, but as we were going back to Paris, we were asked to meet already at 1 hour and 35 minutes before the return time in Paris. In total, this meant that we had just under two hours in the garden. I think it was just short enough, and I didn't understand why it was necessary to meet so early at the bus when we were going back. I got the impression that it was more important to the guide and driver that we got back to Paris quickly than that the guests had as much time in the garden as possible.

All beautiful and the guides very kind and friendly but I think the time (actual stay) in the house and gardens is very short. It is not enough to have a quality experience. I would extend it for at least 1 hour so that you don't really feel that rush and pressure of being on the bus back at 11:30. oh! And that the buses have a working bathroom.

We travelled on a nice day and Giverny is well worth visiting. My advice is to listen to all of the audio guide on the bus on the way there then leave it in the bus and listen again if you want on the way back. Listening on the way there is useful. The check in process was slow and so have patience. We went first to the water gardens which was a good idea as it became busy.
