Monet’s Garden and Giverny Detailed Description

On this full-day excursion you’ll travel to Giverny by train, round-trip from Paris.
Some of Claude Monet’s most famous works were painted in Giverny. These include his Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge paintings. The Impressionist artist lived in Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926. Monet’s Garden itself comprises a flower garden called the Clos Normand in front of the house and the famous water gardens. Monet began to work on the water gardens about 10 years after arriving in Giverny.
When Claude Monet started creating his water garden, he hijacked the little arm of the Epte to create the pond. He build himself a paradise where he would receive his guests and contemplate its beauty. The water garden revolves around a Japanese theme and include a replica of the Japanese bridge which featured in Monet’s well-known painting. It’s the place where Monet started to paint the water lilies in 1987.

The flower garden covers about a hectare and is organized according to colors and perspectives. There are literally thousands of flowers in the Clos Normand including masses of tulips, irises, oriental poppies and peonies, all with the wonderful colors that inspired Monet’s paintings.

In addition to Monet’s Garden, you’ll be able to visit his lovely and colorful house.

Lovely day with the security that all arrangements had been made prior

Monet's garden is always a pleasure no matter what time of year. The garden is peaceful no matter how many people are around. Having a service who arranged your tour and tickets prior to your visit provided great peace of mind. The times there were generous with plenty of opportunities to see the place. Many thanks.

Monet’s gardens were spectacular even in October.

You arrive in the village of Vernon which appears to be economically destitute. You take a crazy jeep/train that gives you a historic overview of the area but not a return schedule requiring long waits to catch return. The town of Giverny is a quant and picturesque place in high contrast to Vernon. Monets garden and house are very worth the trip, spectacular!!! While the overall trip was great, our return train was cancelled creating high drama because the train office personnel were less than helpful.

Superbe journée.

Que ce soit les gens qui m'ont contacté par courriel ou la jeune femme qui m'a imprimé mes billets de train à la gare St-Lazarre et qui a aussi répondu à toutes mes questions, je les considère compétents, professionnels, polis et très gentils.
