What could be a better way to know someone than to go to his place? By discovering the house and gardens of Claude Monet, you can immerge in his daily life, and understand why he loved this place so much.

Why do I love leading this tour to Giverny?

"Claude Monet's paintings are amongst the most famous ones for the impressionist period, but what I really like here is to walk in his beautiful gardens, changing every season, to appreciate the world of Monet as a gardener".

Tips for your visit

How to go to Giverny from Paris

I would recommend using a private driver to get to Giverny. However, it is possible to get there by train, using a shuttle to get from Vernon to Giverny. Please contact me so that I can give you a precise itinerary for your tour. 

Icon disability

This tour is not wheelchair-friendly, due to staircases in the house and due to the narrow paths in the gardens. If you can't walk much, please contact me so that I can arrange a tour for you.

Idea visit Paris Auvers Van Gogh
