This was a memorable visit a few years ago, the gardens were very impressive and well taken care of. The layout of the house along with the furniture and decoration were very impressive, like going back in time, as well as the flowers, the pond, the tulips, water lilies, Fleur-de-lis, etc. Once you visit the house and go thru Claude...

Everything I had imagined-a wonderful experience.The garden was ablaze with flowers and of course the ponds and waterlilies were beautiful.The house was beautiful and showed us a lot about Monet's life.

On a sunny day this is hard to beat. Convenient parking and even though a line up was present, we found the wait more than worth it. As this was in August the flowers were mature and very colourful. The lilly-pad lake is another great place for pictures with reflections etc.

Beautiful gardens and settings. Even in August the gardens look amazing. The ponds with the bridge and waterlillies are as you will have seen in the paintings.

I'll start by saying that I'm not an art expert (few of us are), but I know what I like.....and I've always liked Monet's Water Lillies. To be able to stand on the ground that he painted from......imagine what he was looking at as he painted.....to see how beautiful the garden/pond area is and how it changed with the sun... More

I recently visited Claude Monet's House and Gardens in Giverny. The grounds of the museum are absolutely beautiful, especially when one considers that the property was completely neglected for a long time. The gardens had to be replanted, the house had to be renovated. One is easily transferred in time when visiting Giverny. The Gardens have many plants and flowers,... More

The garden is wonderful in may and there is plenty of paintings in the house. It makes you feel like you were a protagonist of his works.

Now I know why Monet painted such beautiful paintings! Apart from his gift as an artist. he had a beautiful setting where he lived to get inspiration from. Well worth a day trip from Paris to visit his house at Giverny.

I could not believe that I was actually standing in Claude Monet's garden in Giverny, France. How I've admired those paintings of that garden..I never dreamed I would visit. I understand that the flowers were re-planted after his son turned the property over to the foundation. However, the photos in the house show the likeness of the original gardens. And... More

We liked the gardens but hated the crowds. The gardens are split in two go to the water gardens first.
