Gardens are full of blooms in September. I wish they had some of the more unusual ones labeled. House was mildly interesting but the gardens are the draw.

There is a beautiful garden with variety of flowers - all in bloom- where tourist can walk around and enjoy. There is also the famous lily pond. The best way to enjoy the pond is to walk all around it, as the light reflect differently from each angle. At one end of the pond is the bridge (perhaps rebuilt) that... More

The house and gardens are well worth a visit If you book online you get in quicker as you take the voucher to the side entrance near the group one..its slighter dearer as you pay an Internet fee but saves waiting in big queues. The only thing that would make it better is being able to come out for lunch... More

The home and studio is an expansive building and space. Up stairs you will find several rooms that were living space for Monet. There are interesting pieces of art decorating the walls.

Amazing place and gardens. Thumbs up for the water lilly pounds, which was breathtaking. It is worth to go to Giverny just because of the Claude Monet Fondation!

Wonderful flower filled paradise. Everything I expected and more, even in the rain! Pretty busy, but not uncomfortably so. We saw a lucky bride having her wedding photos taken there - how brilliant is that?

Our group enjoyed the opportunity to paint in the evening. Iit was so peaceful and beautiful and in spite of the rainy weather the flowers were brilliant. It was my fourth time visiting and each time at a different season.

It's an annex to Monet's house and garden, connected by a pedestrian tunnel, really well kept by the fondation. Nice walk, lost in thoughts, despite the crowd.
