This little town and monet s house and garden is a great way to spend your day and run away from lines at the most popular places in Paris. We had a option to go with a tour agency but after reading few reviews here we decided to have our own time and go by ourselves. It was not difficult... More

This has been the highlight of my trip to Paris so far... I am actually still here in Giverney, so this review is very current....I took the 10.20am train from Gare St Lazare to Vernon. Only 50 mins. Bus waiting for train at the other end to take us all to Giverny. Only 10 mins. I bought my ticket on... More

This may have been my favorite visit in our trip to France. We did Paris, the Orsay, the L'Organarie, the Eiffel Tower, but Monet's gardens were tops. We supposedly went early for the full effect, but were treated to an early blossoming. Tulip after tulip, and flower after flower, whose name I cannot recall. This is all before we reached... More

My wife and I are fans of French Impressionist painters and had 3 things on our must see list on a recent trip to France. The first two were museums in Paris and Musee d'Orsay and Musee de L'Orangerie that more than lived up to our expectations. The third was Claude Monet's house and gardens at Giverny. We visited on...

I could not have imagined how beautiful these gardens were. My lasting memories are the mass of colour of so many beautiful flowers, for my Mum it was the scents which filled the air. You do not need a long day to visit, just a few hours is fine, but do not hesitate, I can not wait to return.

I have no expectation when I was invited by my friend to visit this place. This place including the town has a wow factor. I visited Girveny during spring and it was just beautiful! Many of scenes painted by Claude Monet came alive here. Definitely one of the highlight of my trip to France. Simply lovely !

If you are in the area make sure you stop off at Giverny and visit Claude Monet's house and gardens. The gardens are spectacular and the house fascinating. Book your tickets in advance online to save yourself standing in the very long queues which form early every day. Spectacular planting and the chance to stand where Monet stood as he... More

Even I wanted to paint something after seeing this, and EVERYONE is a professional photographer (including me). Monet was onto something here, living in a garden with color coordinated flower gardens, lily covered ponds (with loud frogs), and gorgeous little streams flowing through. It takes a while to get there and back (total about 2 hours for train and bus,... More

I actually prefer these gardens to Versailles. I visited in April and it was really beautiful with the most amazing display of spring flowers. Too early for the waterlilies but I didn't miss them as much as I had thought when everything else was so pretty. It does get really busy so getting there early was worth it. I wanted... More
