Today we follow the River Seine upstream in the direction of Paris to visit the picturesque village of Giverny. Impressionist painter Claude Monet lived and worked here from 1883 until his death in 1926. The artist’s former home and elaborate gardens, where he produced his famous Water Lily series, are now the Foundation Claude Monet.
During the visit you will see Clos Normand, the beautiful flower garden that sits in front of the house. You can then take the underground passage to see the contrasting but no less stunning Japanese inspired water garden.
You can wander through the spacious house and simply feel the beauty and tranquility of the surroundings. It is only thanks to generous donors that these beautiful gardens have survived and flourished.
