Claude Monet’s Garden
Inspired by color arrangements and gardening, Claude Monet designed his flower garden. In the garden there are fruit trees and a water garden, as if they are in one of his paintings. During your visit to Giverny garden, you can take a walk along the path leading to the house. Along this path, the park is artfully decorated with nasturtiums and roses, tulips, irises, daffodils and peonies.
In the flower garden of Clos Normandy, you will meet numerous plants from the east. You will then be taken to an exquisite water garden, famous for its water lilies, weeping willows and a green-painted Japanese bridge. We recommend you to enjoy the incredible atmosphere and the play of light over the pond. Tour of Giverny Claude Monet’s Museum and Gardens is a unique variety of colors and sensations.
Claude Monet’s House
Of course, we also recommend you visiting the pink Claude Monet’s House. This is his place of work and home for many years. Here you will see a blue reading room, a pantry and a studio of Claude Monet, remodeled with original furniture, and his private apartments. Please have a look at the modern dining room with pottery and the kitchen, tiled with blue and white tiles from Rouen. In this dining room there is one of the largest collections of Japanese prints in the world.
If you have free time, you might visit the Giverny Museum of Impressionism. The museum is dedicated to the impressionist movement in France and abroad. We also advise you to visit the village, the charming gift shop and the bookstore located in the former Water Lilies studio. It spans over 3,200 square feet and offers a wide range of souvenirs and gifts related to the art of Claude Monet.
