Join our half-day trip from Paris, and you’ll see a hundred different types of flowers and foliage intertwining to create some very colorful living art in Monet’s Flower Garden. Then you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into one of his paintings when you visit the Japanese garden. Seeing the lake full of waterlilies you’ll understand why Monet used this garden as the inspiration for over 250 of his paintings.

Tour Highlights:

- Monet’s Home: Visit the home where this leader in the Impressionist movement lived for more than 40 years.

- The Flower Garden: Planted with more than 100 different types of flowers which bloom and are pruned for different seasons this garden is breathtakingly beautiful at all times of the year.

At the Monet's family grave site, the guide explained Monet's very interesting relationship with the Hoschedé family

We visited Monet's family grave site, the gardens, pond and home. In October, crowds were minimal. However, some of the garden's were chained off and only visible from afar. Our guide was very engaging and knowledgeable. He gave us background detail while travelling to/from Giverny....More

We arrived back at the cafe near the Arch at lunchtime. I don't recall the exact time. I believe they advertise it as 4 hours.
