Experience the beauty of Giverny on a private half-day trip from Paris. Join your knowledgeable local guide and embark on a journey to Claude Monet's legendary house and breathtaking gardens. Board a premium air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy a comfortable drive to the charming town of Giverny.

Drive from Paris to Giverny

After a scenic journey of just over 1.5 hours from Paris, you will arrive in Giverny, where the world of Claude Monet awaits. As one of the most renowned 19th-century French impressionist painters, Monet's home and gardens are a true testament to his artistic genius. The term "impressionism" was even coined from one of Monet's paintings, "Impression, Sunrise," which perfectly captured the essence of this revolutionary art movement.

Visit Claude Monet's House

Upon arrival, your guide will accompany you to the entrance, ensuring skip-the-line access for a seamless experience. Prepare to be captivated as you step into Claude Monet's House, a place where the artist resided and cultivated his artistic vision. Monet acquired the house in 1883 at the age of 43, thanks to the sale of his paintings to art merchant Durand-Ruel. He believed that this tranquil abode would provide the ideal environment to refine his exploration of light and color.

As you enter the house, you will first discover the enchanting reading room, also known as the "little blue sitting room," followed by Monet's original studio where he worked until 1899. Journey to the first floor, where you will find the private apartments. Explore Monet's bedroom, adorned with objects and artwork from his era, as well as reproductions of paintings by his esteemed friends, including Cézanne, Renoir, Signac, and Caillebotte.

Continue your exploration to Alice's bedroom, Claude Monet's beloved wife, and conclude the tour of the upper floor with the final room, which served as Blanche Monet's bedroom. Descend to the ground floor to visit the dining room and kitchen, where you can marvel at Monet's famous collection of Japanese prints, which greatly influenced his artistic style.

Visit the Clos Normand Garden

Next, venture into the magical "Clos Normand" Garden, a testament to Monet's profound love for nature and his desire to create a living canvas for his paintings. Inspired by the gardens of his friends and his previous residence in Argenteuil, Monet carefully designed this garden to better paint it. Witness the transformation as he removed trees, much to Alice's initial dismay, and arranged flower beds to play with colors in his artwork. Immerse yourself in the beauty of daffodils, tulips, narcissus, iris, oriental poppies, and peonies, while the central path is adorned with fragrant roses, cherry and Japanese apricot trees, and vibrant nasturtiums.

Visit the Water Garden

Prepare to be enchanted as you explore the water garden, a masterpiece created by Monet himself by diverting a small river. Here, he would spend hours immersed in contemplation, captivated by the reflections of the sky on the water's surface. Influenced by the artistic movement of "Japonism," Monet constructed a Japanese bridge and introduced oriental plants such as maple trees, Japanese peonies, white lilies, bamboo, and Ginkgo Biloba. This serene setting inspired Monet's iconic "Nymphéas" series, representing the water lilies pond and pushing the boundaries of abstraction in his art. Today, a team of dedicated gardeners maintains Giverny's gardens throughout the year, ensuring their continued splendor.

Free time for personal discovery

After your guided tour, take some free time to immerse yourself further in the picturesque village of Giverny. If time allows, consider a visit to the Museum of Impressionism to deepen your understanding of this influential art movement. For those who desire a more comprehensive experience, we also offer full-day private tours from Paris to Giverny, allowing ample time to explore and soak in the beauty of Monet's world.

Don't miss this opportunity to discover the enchanting realm of Claude Monet and the vibrant landscapes that inspired his timeless masterpieces. Book your private half-day trip to Giverny from Paris today and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
