Giverny Half Day Tour with Audio Guide from Paris

Discover Giverny, its garden, and Monet’s home at your own leisure and learn all about the history of the great impressionist’s life and works.

Claude Monet lived with his family for more than 40 years in this Normand village. Follow in Monet’s footsteps as you visit the house, which includes the “blue sitting room,” his reading room which opens into the “pantry” where he kept tea, oil, spices and eggs. Continue on to the dining room, which houses the private apartments and one of the world’s largest Japanese print collections.

The visit continues with a stroll through the luscious Monet garden. During this walk, you can listen to audio guide commentary about Monet’s life, works and career. Take in the vibrant flower-lined central path, which is surrounded by roses, nasturtium, and flowerbeds of all kinds, offering a wide spectrum of color. Cross the Clos-Normand, where you will find flowers from the Far East. Finally, you’ll come upon the magnificent water garden, famous for its water lilies, weeping willows, and the celebrated Japanese bridge spanning the pond. You will have two hours to tour Monet’s home, his studio and vibrantly colored gardens.
