During your visit, admire the multicolored flower beds, several different plant species originally from the West, the amazing water garden with its famous water lilies, and its Japanese bridge, the object of Monet’s paintings so often. Then take your time to visit the pink house, the office of Claude Monet, and his home. Make the most of your free time during your tour and enjoy a self-guided trip to the Impressionism Museum of Giverny, dedicated to the movement of Impressionists in France and abroad.
