Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    This half-day trip will lead you to the edge of Normandy, where you will visit the idyllic home of Claude Mone located in the small village of Giverny. Your afternoon tour, will start from Paris City Center where your guide will pick you up at your hotel or private apartment. You will be transported aboard a deluxe minibus with one of our guides, so you can, relax and make the most of your trip.

    Once at destination in Giverny, you will enjoy time in the gardens which have been replanted as they once were and offer visitors the “painting from nature” which Claude Monet’s contemporaries considered to be one of his masterpieces. The rectangular Clos Normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around brilliantly coloured shrubs, lies before the house and studios, offering from Spring to Autumn the palette of varying colours to the painter-gardner who was “ecstatic about flowers”. Lastly, the Water Garden, formed by a tributary of the Epte, lies further away, shaded by weeping willows. With its famous Japanese Bridge, its wistarias, azaleas and its pond, it has once more become that casket of sky and water which inspired the pictorial universe of the water lilies.

    You will also have the opportunity to discover a precious collection of Japanese engravings displayed in several rooms, hung in the marmer chosen by the master of Giverny himself. Claude Monet’s property at Giverny, left by his son to the Académie des Beaux-arts in 1966, has, after completion of large scale restoration work, become the Claude Monet Foundation, inaugurated in 1980. The huge Nymphéas studio, a stone’s throw from the house, has also been restored and contains the Foundation’s Shop.

    Then before leaving the village of Giverny, pay a last tribute to this universally acclaimed artist, at his grave.
