Step by Step

Relive the source of Claude Monet's inspiration as you explore his home, gardens and ponds on this half-day excursion departing from Paris with a professional local guide.

You'll embark on an air-conditioned bus tour that will take you to the home of the forerunner and leading figure of the Impressionist painting movement.

This place became his own foundation in the 1980s, when it opened its doors to the public.

You will stroll through the Water Garden, the most idyllic picturesque scene in the house, stylized with ponds of water lilies that were filled with the stealthy discharge of the Epte River, a tributary of the Seine.

Over these waters perch the beautiful green bridges with wisteria, inspired by Japanese art and landscaping, one of the artist's self-confessed hobbies, which he also captured in his work.

In front of the main house, whose windows and parts of its facade are also painted in an intense green, are the gardens known as Clos Normandy, which offer a visual spectacle straight out of Monet's paintings.

In spring, especially, its countless lilies, roses, daffodils, nasturtiums, peonies and many other kinds of plants and flowers stand out, offering an unforgettable concert of color, light and splendor for every visitor.

When you visit, you will feel like you are in a floral paradise of light and shadow, with towering trees, vines and weeping willows, reflecting the scenes immortalized in Monet's paintings.

After the excursion at the foundation, you will also have the opportunity to visit the historic center of the village of Giverny, located on the west bank of the Seine River in the Normandy region.
