Giverny Half Day Tour with Audio Guide from Paris

Discover Giverny, its garden, Monet’s home and learn all about the history of the great impressionist’s life and works of this self-guided half-day excursion to the Giverny Foundation.

The departure is from the centre of Paris, where you will be given the audio guides for the visit. After about an hour and a half drive through the green countryside, you will arrive in Giverny. You will then have about 2 hours to discover Monet's house, his studio and his gardens of a thousand colours.

Claude Monet lived in this Norman village for more than forty years with all his family. You will be able to immerse yourself in Monet's daily life by visiting his house, which includes the "petit salon bleu" (small blue living room), which was the reading room, the latter overlooking the "grocery store" where tea, oil, spices and eggs were stored, the dining room, which exhibits one of the most important collections of Japanese prints in the world, and his private apartments.

Continue your visit with a walk in the sumptuous garden of Giverny which was the main source of inspiration for this undisputed master of impressionism. During your stroll, you will be able to listen to the commentaries offered by your audio guide on the life, work and works of Monet.

Admire the central alley surrounded by roses and nasturtiums, the flowerbeds that offer a wide range of colours and cross the Clos Normand where multiple oriental plants are planted. You will walk through the magnificent water garden with the famous water lilies on the pond, the weeping willows and the famous Japanese bridge crossing the pond.

You will finish your excursion with a free visit to the museum of impressionism which will allow you to contemplate masterpieces from all over the world and to better understand the impressionist movement.
