We visited as a destination as I am an avid gardener. We were not disappointed. This is a wonderful place in spring. The gardens were ablaze with late tulips and gorgeous iris. Wisteria was just leafing out and the apple trees were in full bloom. Definitely not to be missed if you are anywhere nearby.

So amazingly beautiful and breath taking. You can easily spend an entire day here, so many flowers like you've never seen before.

Even in late October, when entering the garden and park with all its flowers and the famous water lillies pond, the feeling is like entering into one of Monet's paintings. Incredible variations of colors, and a strange feeling of a garden and a park which is well kept, yet has a certain ambience of decay and being "left to itself".... More

It looks like pictures of Monet became alive. Something unreal. It's better to book tickets through Internet site in order to avoid enormous queues. Better to visit during low touristic season (spring or autumn) because in other case it will be impossible to enjoy all the beauty of this place, it's not very spacious.

Seeing the Lilly pad lined garden ponds & visiting Monet's house are the reason you ventured here - & it's a worthwhile trip. If possible, visit in the afternoon to avoid the crowds & tour hordes. You'll be amazed at the many different plants which you'll see & enjoy. Afterwards, just walk the little village, have a meal & then... More

The Monet gardens are absolutely breathtaking. If you love gardens and peaceful settings then this is the place for you. The little town of Giverny is quintessentially charming. After touring the gardens and Monet's house stop at Hotel Baudy for a drink or an espresso.

I enjoyed getting there via train to Vernon, Then a bus to giverny . The gardens weren't as big as I thought they would be. Still nice though and we just managed to beat the crowds. Lovely shop with good quality items. Nice to wander the local streets

This garden was amazing with the shear numbers and kind of flowers and plants. The colours and smells were great. The water lilies were open when we visited and it was just like all the paintings. Take your time and look at everything.

As a lover of Monet's art I throughly enjoyed the visit to the Monet Foundation. It was wonderful to experience first hand the beautiful landscapes that inspired many of Monet paintings. We visited the Marmotton Monet Museum in Paris and were able to purchase discount tickets for both museums and thus able to 'skip' the queue at Giverny. Being able... More
