Claude Monet's Giverny's residence is a sight to behold. So peaceful and tranquil. We went there as part of a half day tour, which was nice. Claude's house was so large, it was surprising, and his studio room, kitchen and other rooms were very well appointed. The gardens were magnificent. The Japanese bridge, the lake and the surrounding area plant... More

We visited Monet's garden one morning in early June with our bus group. From the bus parking lot we had to walk about 8 minutes to reach the garden gate. We visited the pond area first and noticed very little bloom anywhere...too early for the wisteria on the bridge to be in bloom, water lilies were just green leaves, daylilies... More

I had always wanted to see Monet's Garden and glad I did have a chance to see it(practically my dream came true). I catch the train in the morning from Paris and took approx. 25 minutes to get there plus 15-20 minutes waited for the train. The garden was gorgeous. It was exactly like the painting especially Water Lily and... More

Monet's gardens are still a marvel to behold. Everyone comes for the lily pond, but the gardens by the house are wonderful too. Order your tickets online to bypass the lines: http://giverny.org/gardens/fcm/ticket/ It helps to get there in the morning. We arrived shortly after 11, and while there were already quite a few people there, the lines were considerably longer... More

Glorious gardens - we went on an overcast day, so the reflections were not so great. Magnificent colours and plenty of blooms, but no wisteria.

I arrived in Paris around lunch time and decided to do a half day tour in Giverny. I am so glad I went, the gardens were beautiful. It did seem kind of quick, we spent more time on the bus than the actual gardens, but I am very glad to have gone.

I have visited this attraction many times and it always looks different but never tired at various times of the year. The gardens are an amazing show of dazzling floral colour schemes which are beautifully maintained. I understand from what I have read that the gardens and the house were abandoned for many years and the river flooded and destroyed... More

Monet's garden is a joy to behold, especially early in the day before the hoards arrive on coaches. We bought our ticket online. There was no additional charge and meant we did not have to wait in line. All areas of the garden were quite wonderful, with much interest in the pond and Japanese Bridge area. The flowers are a...

Wonderful garden which you know from Monet's paintings and you can try to look at it as he did. In the house there is nice collection of Japanese paintings but non of Monet's painting, which is a big pitty.

One of the highlights of our recent holiday in France was our visit to the town of Giverny and Monet’s Garden. The gardens are absolutely beautiful! We arrived at 9am and were one of the first to walk through the gates. It was lovely and peaceful in the early morning to be able to sit quietly on a stone bench... More
