My wife and I have been to Claude Monet's Garden on two occasions: the first time in late May when the colours were fairly well developed and there were some water lilies in bloom. The other time in March 2015, on the first day in the 2015 season that the gardens were open. Not so many flowers, as you may... More

Unfortunately we were in Giverny a week before the house and gardens reopened for the tourist season. Nevertheless, we were able to walk around the house and peer through the fence to look at the gardens. It's obvious they they will be absolutely beautiful when in bloom. We also enjoyed our walk to the cemetery to see Monet's grave. Giverny... More

This was truly a great place to visit. We took the train to Giverny from Paris. Very easy access to Giverny. The grounds are just fantastic. It seemed like around every corner I recognized a painting. Duh! Of course, every corner of this place was painted by Monet. I took a lot of pictures and upon returning to the US... More

Great Day out was one of my favourites of my day trips if you love gardening into art this will give you great inspiration. From his man made lake to his amazing display of flowers and paintings and learning about the mans history this is a must do list when you come to Paris France

We arrived in the rain on July 13th and I must say the rain itself made Giverny and Claude Monet's legendary gardens that much more magical. Every petal, every leaf, the vertical plantings, the colors, the entire experience is sensually stunning. Monet's house was the disappointment and not because of the house itself but I suppose I thought we would... More

This was what I was most excited to see on our trip to France. We even had to rent a car we weren't expecting to have to rent because of the train system strikes. I thought, "no worries, it's all worth it." I'd say we spent a total of 90 minutes there, most of which was spent shuffling about the... More

We visited here in late October 2013. We had been in Paris 2 years earlier and had missed being able to visit the gardens as they close from 1 November so this time we made sure we were in Paris prior to this date to be able to do this visit. We booked through France Tourisme on rue des Augustines.... More

We've been there twice, both trips a few years ago, and we are still using the photos we took to create beautiful prints and greeting cards. It's just beautiful. Go early, right when they open, and move quickly through the gardens and skip the house at first. Head for the water lilies to beat out the bus tourists. You can... More

This is one of the most magical places you can visit when you are in Paris and have enough time for some day out of the city. Even gardens in and around Paris are multiple and great, I would say that this one of Giverny is in my top 3, together with Albert-Kahn museum (a piece of Japan in Paris)... More
