If you are a lover of Monet or simply of nature, this is the place to go. The water lily pond and the gardens are just beautiful and Monet's house is very interesting. It would be nice if they had a cafe inside the premises instead of outside so one can linger on longer and clear directions to the water... More

We visited the house and gardens during an excursion from a Viking Riverboat cruise. The house is interesting but the gardens are larger than I expected with a profusion of color and great variety of flowers and plants. I've seen a lot of gardens around the world, but this has to be at the top. There was a cafe close... More

Booked the train from Paris to Vernon online and once we arrived we rented bikes across the station for 14 euro each, it took around 30 minutes to get to Giverny. Left our bikes at the carpark and walked to the Monet House. We booked the tickets for the House and Garden online and could skip the long queue and... More

I took an organized bus tour from the center of Paris To Monet's house & Gardens & to one other place. Monet's house & Garden were wonderful, BUT If you have time there are many other ways to see this house & Garden. Like I said I was in a bus, I was dyeing to tell the bus driver to... More

I stayed in a local hotel and was able to get up early the next morning see Vernon and head to Monet's garden for opening, only to find out Tour groups are able to arrive 30min before opening so it was already busy. The place was packed at 9.40am and you really are not able to enjoy the gardens. Would... More

To avoid long line, purchase tickets on line. Quite the experience to visit the site of so many of Monet's paintings. Interesting to evesdrop on the many English speaking tour guides.

It's amazing to be able to see the gardens where Monet worked. They don't seem to have changed much since he lived there. My husband and I took a train to Vernon and then walked to the gardens. It's a long walk but quite pleasant and the scenery around the town is quite enjoyable. There is a nice paved path... More

It was a lovely day and a lovely trip,we really enjoyed it. We went fairly early morning and it was quiet for some time,thus we were able to wander at will.The house is well worth a visit and contains many prints. The kitchen was a delight.
