  • Overview
    Explore the garden of Claude Monet in Giverny, where the famous impressionist artist painted the Water Lilies series. The artists’ pastel pink and green house has a lovely airy studio, which now houses reproductions of his work. Monet’s beautiful garden in Giverny is particularly delightful for its profusion of flowers in every imaginable shade and colour.

    The subject of the Water Lilies series, the water pond and the Japanese bridge are a beautiful sight. The bridge is covered in purple wisterias, planted by Monet himself.

    The American Art Museum houses paintings by American impressionist artists who came to France in the late 19th century. In fact, many sought inspiration and guidance from Monet, the ‘Painter of Light’.

    A day trip from Paris, Giverny draws visitors to see the garden that inspired Monet to create such beautiful work.

A profusion of flowers in every possible shade and colour makes this garden a must visit. Stroll around and admire the pond and the Japanese bridge covered in purple wisteria.
