We took the morning train from Gare-St-Lazare to Vernon Station,only 45 minutes,from where a shuttle bus delivers you to Giverny. The carpark, one of five, removes any allusion about sharing this quiet hamlet by yourself. Sixteen,giant tourist- transporters have already disgorged their occupants.....oohhh,what the hell,you are here,are you not?.......yes,it is a very popular spot! This is the home of the... More

This palce is so incredible! We took the train from Paris and it was worth while. This is a serene and wonderful place. The staff is freindly and helpful. You should know enough french to communicate with train station staff as in my personal experience not all ticket sellers speack english. Beware of the bus drivers from the train station... More

We visited in October 2012 and we're very impressed especially as this was an additional price to what we paid to get into the gardens. If you don't go in, you can still walk around and see the additional gardens near the museum.

garden & house of Claude Monet There are two parts in Monet's garden: a flower garden called Clos Normand in front of the house and a Japanese inspired water garden on the other side of the road. The two parts of Monet's garden contrast and complement one another. Very true and correctly put. I have very much appreciated them both.... More

Although most of this small museum's galleries were closed for installation we were still able to view photographs of Monet's Gardens and House in the downstairs gallery (and it was free!).

I took a group of students & adults here in July about a year ago and the gardens were spectacular. We had pre-purchased group tickets, so we did not experience any waits to enter. The gardens were relaxing and beautiful. The house was also interesting and quaint. Exactly as one would expect from a country house. We enjoyed our visit... More

The most stunning garden, tulips in bloom in every color. It would be hard not to be surrounded by such beauty. Visiting the pond just days after viewing monets water Lillie's at l'orangerie was magical.

This would have to be one of the most poorly organised and dissapointing attractions we have been to. The crowd management and ticketing is a disgrace and bordering on unsafe. The gardens consist of a short ciruit around a pond with poorly maintained gardens. Save your money and appreciate Monet at the Musee D'Orsay. If you must go book your... More
