Giverny Gardens near Paris

In early 20th century, the famous impressionist painter Claude Monet worked hard to turn his colorful Giverny Gardens near Paris into a source of inspiration.

Maintained in their original design, Giverny Gardens will remind you of famous paintings by Monet such as the Japanese bridge (picture) and the waterlilies (picture).

A simple way to visit Giverny Gardens is on a guided tour (not available in winter). You can combine the visit of Giverny with a visit to Versailles, a one day tour.
