Half-Day Trip to Giverny from Paris

1. Half-Day Trip to Giverny from Paris

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.

Picturesque place. Unfortunately there is not enough time to enjoy it. One would have wished for 30 minutes or an hour of quiet. The garden is so mesmerizing and the time goes by quickly there. The guide was ready to leave for Paris without us, we took the bus at the last second.

Coach arrived on time. Fuss-free. Well organised. Air conditioned coach on an extremely hot day. Alex, the guide, very informative although we chose self-guided tour. Difficult to enjoy gardens in 40+°C & house was a little crowded but that wasn't the fault of the organisers

The organization worked great, everyone was very nice. In fact, time is short on site, you can't sit on a bench, you have to walk briskly to see everything. Still, I would recommend the tour.

Amazing, on time, super organized and our guide was incredible!

Time is a bit tight. Well organized, nice service.
