Giverny & Monet's Garden by Train

2. Giverny & Monet's Garden by Train

Some of Claude Monet’s most famous works were painted in Giverny. These include his Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge paintings. The Impressionist artist lived in Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926. On this full-day excursion you’ll travel to Giverny by train, round-trip from Paris. The garden itself comprises a flower garden in front of the house and the more famous water gardens across the road. Monet began work on the water gardens about 10 years after arriving in Giverny. Interestingly locals were originally opposed to his plans to build water gardens, fearful that the strange plants would poison the water of the tributary feeding the ponds. The flower gardens cover about a hectare and are laid out in color-themed borders. There are literally thousands of flowers in these gardens including masses of tulips, irises, oriental poppies and peonies, all with the wonderful colors that inspired Monet's paintings. The water gardens have a Japanese theme and include a replica of the Japanese bridge which featured in Monet's well-known painting. In addition to the gardens you’ll be able to visit Monet’s lovely and very colorful house.

Lovely day with the security that all arrangements had been made prior

Monet's garden is always a pleasure no matter what time of year. The garden is peaceful no matter how many people are around. Having a service who arranged your tour and tickets prior to your visit provided great peace of mind. The times there were generous with plenty of opportunities to see the place. Many thanks.

We had the chance to have good weather for this visit of the gardens and the house of Claude Monet. The guide was very friendly and knew the names of the flowers and the painter's life. We had a great visit with her.
