When traveling by minibus for about an hour and a half, enjoy French countryside’s lush green landscapes as you listen to your guide’s commentary on the way to the tiny Normandy village of Giverny. It was home to Claude Monet, his wife and children for 43 years, until the death of the artist in 1926.

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.
