Beautifully kept, magnificent gardens with homestead, gift shop of Claude Monet’s property . May be worth having a guided tour if your time is limited. It was extremely humid and hot ( Europe’s gripping heat if 100 degrees) while we were there and be aware...More

Just absolutely beautiful gardens and ponds. Well maintained. Nice walk. Easy to get to although there are a few steps. Could be a challenge with a large crowd. We had a smaller crowd on our visit and pictures were not easy as everyone wanted them....More

We were a large group but our guide expertly moved us through the gardens with the famous water lilies and Japanese wisteria bridge. We had the full history of Monet and his love of gardening as well as his painting; it was a memorable tour...More

We visited the gardens, Monet’s home and museum. The lily garden was inviting a picture, as were the other gardens on his property. Absolutely a place to see if you appreciate Monet’s Art.

We visited in April, when the gardens were lush. Tulips and spring flowers everywhere. You should take a tour - we were with a Viking boat tour and it was included. They walked us around everywhere, including the interior of Monet's home and made sure...More

If you like flowers, this is the place for you. Claude Monet's home and gardens are so beautiful. You could spend hours looking at the flowers. The home has many replica's of his paintings too. Go early! The later it gets, the more people there...More

This was on the top of my list for our trip though France, ( last time we were in Paris we didn’t make it here, so this time I wasn’t going to miss out). We bought our ticket on line so we could walk right...More

Very busy by anyones standards. Going late morning, early afternoon helps, when most of the tour buses have vanished, but it's still a shuffle up and down the paths. Monet's house is sort of as he left it, many of his paintings, just don't know...More

This is one place you do not want to miss while visiting Paris. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and so well maintained. I felt like I had walked into one of Monet's lily pond paintings. I was truly awestruck by the beauty. Monet worked tirelessly...More

It's when it opens for the day. I also booked online and my printed ticket had the same information, but we went in a little later. It's good to arrive early, though, because it gets crowded. If you have a printed ticket... More

Yes, same thing - only with the tour you get a guide, if you don't do the tour, you are free to walk around by yourself. We didn't do the tour. It is definitely something to see, beautiful! Enjoy!
