This was a quick train ride from Paris (about an hour) and touring Monet's house and gardens gave me more appreciation for his work. Gardens are beautiful and despite the fact that it was really crowded when we went, it was still large enough outside...More

This isn't an actual review, since we didn't go in. We found the lines impossible, but seems like a worthwhile effort for others. We did cross the road and peek over the fence into the gardens and Lily pond. Oh well.

I wasn’t sure if the day trip from Paris was worth the visit, but I knew it was a sight my wife wanted to return to. In hindsight, I am thankful she did as we enjoyed a beautiful sunny day in Monet’s other worldly garden....More

I wanted to visit the gardens for many years and they did not disappoint. Even though it was October they were full of collie, the water gardens were simply stunning. Everywhere you looked you could see a real life Monet painting! Not to be missed!

Lots of people and lots of flowers, may be too many. Monet's house is beautiful but very crowded. Like many other popular tourist attractions, Monet's garden attracts a lot of people, which takes away the pleasure of such a beautul place. However, the pond area...More

The best garden we have ever been to. It truly takes your breath away. Parking was easy, prices were fair and the village itself was lovely too. Do not miss it as its the garden to remember .

Coming here is quite impressive. You will feel a part of the show and the world. If you're in Paris I would recommend going to the L'orangerie museum before. Monets old house is conserved to perfection and really worth going when the gardens are open.

We visited Monet's garden in October and it was superb! The weather was unseasonably warm and the bees were buzzing around the dahlias and nasturtiums. The house was a delight - a really warm, homely feel and we could easily imagine the family living here....More

We went in late May 2018. The line took about a 1/2 hour to get in. We did not have a skip the line pass either - we toured the grounds and garden. Most items and view-able things in the facility are self explanatory... More

Yes it is better to get in early! There are many tour busses. Go to the Lilly Ponds first. It gets packed. There is just one little walkway that goes around. The ponds.
