Visit the beautiful home and garden that inspired the master of Impressionism, Claude Monet, on a small group afternoon tour from Paris. The half-day tour is unguided, meaning you are free to explore at your own pace. Takes in Monet's restored home and garden in Giverny, and you'll also visit the Musée des Impressionnismes in Giverny. You'll be picked up and dropped off at your centrally located Paris hotel by air-conditioned minivan. Maximum of only 8 passengers on this small-group tour from Paris.
Your afternoon tour to Giverny will take you through the Normandy countryside to the charming country village of Giverny, where Monet lived with his family from 1883 until his death in 1926. It was here in Giverny that Monet indulged his love of nature, in his painting, his gardening and his photography. You'll be able to stroll through Monet's exquisite gardens and admire the water-lily pond and famous Japanese bridge which featured in his masterpieces. Independently explore the house and gardens to get a real feel for how Monet lived and what provided the inspiration to his works.
The final stop on your artists' tour before returning to Paris is a visit to the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny. The museum houses a number of works by American painters who traveled to Giverny to meet Claude Monet and draw inspiration from his Impressionist techniques.
