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

In late September while visiting Paris, we booked a small group tour with Paris City Vision to visit Giverny. Specifically, Claude Monet's garden and house. Our tour guide Gregory was exceptional. I believe everyone usually remembers breathtaking sites, but what made our day special was Gregory. He was extremely knowledgeable about pointing out sites on our trip to Giverny, so... More

I went to Giverny on a hot, busy holiday but still found th experience of the gardens magical. The driver took care to point out places of interest both on the way there and the way back, which made the experience even better!!

I visited Monet's gardens with some misgivings. First of all, I find gardens and gardening of little interest, and secondly, I went in Autumn, so I didn't expect to see many flowers. Well, I decided to get my head straight while on the train to Giverny (the train leaves from Gare St Lazarre in Paris). So, because I enjoy a... More

I have visited several times- my favorite is late June when the wisteria is blooming on the bridge and the roses are gorgeous. Later you will see summer flowers- nasturtium, sunflowers. The way they plant is so amazing- there are low flowers and higher ones and everything flows together. When you walk around the pond the bushes are blooming. Remember... More

We took a bus out for the day. Beautiful gardens, (odd road crossing situation) and really cute kitchy house. The lake is actually across the road in a separate garden and was probably my favourite part. Worth a visit

My partner and I took a day trip to Monets house and garden in the Spring season. We decided on a coach trip as we were not sure of the trains from Paris. We regretted this decision as the coach was delayed and had no air-conditioning on a hot day. The tour guide was great speaking many languages, very impressive.... More

We made a special visits to this locatation on our drive from the coast back to Paris. I enjoyed seeing whether the great artist lived and did some of his best work. It is worth a stop.

The beauty of Claude Monet's Garden in the Springtime overwhelms the senses. I am not one to swoon but I must admit feeling lightheaded at times as I walked through the gardens: the colors! the hues and aromas! I wanted to laugh and cry at the same moment because it is that beautiful! The wisteria was vibrant and in full... More

Last year my husband, two friends and I visited the gardens in May. I had been there before with my daughter in the same month and we were awe struck. Unfortunately after building it up to my husband, the gardens were a real let down. There were no stunning beds of tulips and no vast contrasting colours that I so... More
