We took a day out of our week in Paris to spend it in Giverny. It is an hour out of the city by train.
It was a glorious day in a quaint village that was topped with the visit to Monet's gardens and house.
The village is well worth being discovered at leisure. We visited an artist studio located on the main street and spent a good hour chatting with the owner. After a street side degustation of apple liquor, we arrived at Monet's house for a leisurely stroll in the Gardens. The scenery exceeded our expections with a mind boggling variety of flowers and colours. The Japanese bridge was unfortunately very crowded.
The house itself is more impressive externally than internally as we expected to see more momentos of the great man on display. The views of the gardens from the upper floor are excellent.
A late lunch in the square bordering the house was tasty and reasonably priced.
