The beauty of the gardens here can't be understated. We went in mid-May, when the Norman Garden was in bloom; the water lilies in the Japanese Garden were close to blooming, but not quite there yet. The house is striking for its collection of art and the interesting design and color choices.

Very nice garden, know Claude Monet's life and his garden.. Just too many people and you can hear the traffic from the road.. pretty much ruins the space... wish there is no truck passing by that much.. it's pretty much a day trip from paris.. if you have spare time come to see this garden.. if you think there are...

Such a beautiful place. We felt like we were in one of his paintings. I don't understand the no photo policy in his home, but I will respect the rule. Even though it was rainy and the garden was not in full bloom, it was amazing. Can't wait to go back and spend more time there. Next time we will... More

We drove to Vernon and toured Monet's House and Gardens. Glad we got there early because it was already crowded upon our arrival. The gardens are stunningly beautiful. Many flowers were in full bloom in September. We took gobs of pictures (don't take any in the house - it is not allowed). After your tour take time to go to... More

It's sure sad that someone gives a 1* review on a place for their own mistake of not checking the schedule! Goodness...grow up! Do your research before you go and then rate accordingly! Whose fault is it, exactly?! Giverny is like stepping into a painting. It's just perfect. I've been twice, will go a third time this summer. It's worth... More

After spending a day exploring Monet's gardens, ponds, house and studio which were spectacular, we saw his paintings in Paris at the Musee' d'Orsay. Such fun to see the real thing and his inspiration for my favorite artist. His gardens in Giverny are a "Must See" and if you have a sunny day (great for the pictures I took), all... More

We tried to visit over spring break which would have been March. Pretty much everything was closed down and there was nothing to see. Pretty disappointing. Make sure you check the schedule.

I would suggest you arrive first thing in the morning, like 8 AM and go into one of the nearby cafes and have a coffee. This is a major attraction and the line to enter for individuals started to queue up around 8:45 AM with a 9:30 AM opening time. The line for large groups was very, very long. There... More

Book tickets in advance - in mai the queues were indeed long although they moved reasonably fast. Once in the gardens we were pleasantly surprised that they did not feel as crowded as had expected. The flowers in Mai were stunning. The hickeldy pickeldy of such an array of flowers and colours was awesome - the aliums and peonies were... More

We loved our visit to Monets Garden. We discovered we should have bought our tickets on line as the queue was long and the day was hot. The garden when we got in there was just beautiful and to walk across to the lily pond and stand on that bridge he painted with the trees and the boat just as... More
