Always wanted to visit Claude Monet's house and garden in Giverny. May was the perfect time. Tulips, Iris, poppies and wisteria were all in bloom. It was incredible and a dream come true. The garden is huge. The house is fascinating- has many paintings and Monet's collection of Japanese prints. We booked a Viator tour from Paris- booked a week... More

After surviving the hustle-bustle of Paris, this was like heaven. The gardens are stunning, visitors were calm and seemed reverent. The essence of Monet is captured in this beautiful place. The famous bridge and ponds are icing on the cake.

Excellent place to visit, whether you like art or flowers and especially if you appreciate Claude Monet. Do plan your visit to arrive quite early OR very late, anything in-between means crowds, waiting and lots and lots of tourists in a compact place - not really ideal as they let all in who come, and there is lots and lots...

This was recommended by a Parisian as a must see, and we were not disappointed! The Gardens are absolutely beautiful, and to walk in Claude Monet's house and see how he lived, was very interesting. There is a patio restaurant close by that served delicious food, but be prepared for lots of food! :)

Loved the lily ponds and seeing the view that Monet actually painted. The house was interesting and loved seeing the view from his studio and some of the original paintings.

Early May found Le Clos Normand aglow with iris, rhodedendrons, tulips, peonies and more. Meanwhile at the water lily pond, not only was the wisteria in bloom but frogs mated on the lily pads, dancing maroon, on the water and created unique sound effects. Where was Monet? He may be long dead, but he was here, more present than he... More

It was raining – gently, but steadily -- when we visited these gardens. This made photography very challenging, and I didn’t get photos of the quality I had hoped for. Nevertheless, the rain didn’t dampen our enthusiasm. We could see Monet’s artistic eye everywhere we looked, and this place is beautiful in any weather. I should have worn a hooded... More

To walk the paths around the water features brings Monet's vision to life. While there were crowds, they tended to congregate in just a few areas, leaving the majority of the paths to ourselves. To view the pond through the hanging branches of the large willow tree is like looking back in time.
