A wonderful escape from the city, visiting Monet’s Gardens and the village of Giverny is like walking in a picture postcard.
To see Monet’s atelier, his home and his beloved gardens – even his grave – is a treat for any art lover. The quaintness of this special area of France is unrivalled in its beauty and tranquillity.
Being only one hour from Paris you have a wonderful choice of ways to experience this special destination. You can enjoy touring on a bicycle, or you can be picked up at your apartment/hotel and be off for a wonderful afternoon in the gardens in a private or small group tour.
Another option is to arrange a private driver take you on a scenic drive to Giverny where you can leisurely visit the village and see Monet’s home and gardens, and then enjoy a idyllic lunch at a restaurant nestled directly on the Seine next to a 17th century windmill, before heading back to Paris. The ways you can experience Giverny and Monet’s Gardens abound – you have many options to consider!
