Ended up spending more time in the bus than at the gardens. Beautiful, but not much to see. Would recommend staying in Paris and seeing other attractions if you are there a short time.

Go the house and gardens early as it gets very busy. Arrive about 8:45 so you can enjoy the grounds and avoid long lines. AFTER take a walk about the town to see the well preserved houses and architecture. A quaint town with places to enjoy lunch & or dinner. Take a picture together on the very back bridge facing...

Giverny is not a simple, easy and quick place to get to, but then Monet did not select his house and garden based on the needs of tourists one hundred years later. So if you are pressed for time and have not allocated enough time for Paris, this may not be a trip that is all that worthwhile. The house... More

We visited this place on end of june 2015. We came early in the morning however the place was packed with lots of tourists so it's difficult to admire the place because we have to keep moving. It would be better if there's arrangement from the foundation to limit number of visits each day or arrange the each visit by... More

I really enjoyed my visit here. There is so much colour all around the garden. It is well organised & easy to walk around & enjoy the beauty of the blooms. It was all in all a lovely relaxing morning.

Nothing really that special. It is probably quite different to what it looked like in Monet's days. Pretty indeed but if not for Monet, few would go there. The village is nothing special either.

We were very fortunate to experience the beauty and serenity of the gardens that inspired Monet. Our good fortune also included our fantastic tour guide (and our Limo Driver) who knew exactly where we needed to begin. As we reached the Gardens, we headed straight to the Japanese gardens and lily pond that can be seen in many of Monet's... More

While on our two we trip to Paris we spent half a day at this place. You can take a train from Paris and a bus from Vernon Paris on to Giverny. We however, had a rental car and the drive from Paris is about one hour. This is a quite town with mostly tourist. I recommend doing a picnic... More

We visited here from The town of Vernon. After entering you spend time in the attached gardens where you can get a live picture of many of Renoir's paintings, especially the water lilies. They keep this place flowering with numerous variety and lots of TLC. The Renoir home itself is somewhat disappointing. Their is no signs that distinguish one room... More
