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

My wife and I have been here probably about 60 times in roughly 30 years; and in our view the Foundation continually improves -- most recently because of the new (English) head gardener of the Foundation. To fully appreciate the garden, you need to go at various times of the year, observing the subtle and sometimes radical changes to the... More

The house and gardens of Claude Monet, also known as Foundation Claude Monet, are very involved. The house is somewhat intact with his rooms and belongings of where and when he lived and died. The gardens are impressive. Tip: be sure to go in the tunnel in the corner of the gardens to go under the road to the water... More

Well worth the time and effort to visit. Not really overcrowded, but expect a quiet respect for the gardens. If approaching Paris, visit prior to the city. If in Paris, a short train ride. Actually, we prefer the gardens to a museum.

This is one of my favorite places in the world, pay attention when it's opened and enjoy a wonderful garden and the house where Monet has lived!

Nice visit of Renoir's home and gardens. About a 20 minute drive from Vernon. During the summer it can be very warm. One e entering you cannot re-enter. House itself is very plain and lacks signs and information.

We pre-bought our tickets on the internet (highly recommended). This allowed us to use the group entrance and avoid the long lines. We thoroughly enjoyed touring the gardens and the house. The house was very surprising and showed some of the private life of Monet. Of course the Japanese gardens were magical and with the lily ponds, I felt I... More

Any Monet enthusiast may hold unrealistic expectations for Giverny; however, temper high expectations and reflect after a visit to find that high expectations are warranted. It is an historic and magical compound. I took a train from Paris and ambled down the road to Monet's gardens and home. Surrounding the "main attraction" are artisans with art for sale or with...

We visited on a Sunday morning and worried about crowds but we had pre-purchased out tickets online and so entered the gardens immediately with no line up(highly recommend doing this). Of course, our favourite place was the Japanese garden. Even in September there are many things in bloom including the water lilies. If you take some of the side pathways,... More
