The Visit

Visiting Fondation Monet at Giverny with a guide, you will understand why these places inspired the leader of Impressionism. You will step on the famous Japanese bridge and walk around the water lily pond to observe the ever changing reflections on the water surface.
Then you will stroll across the Clos normand, the colorful flower garden blooming from spring to fall. Monet himself landscaped it by applying his sense of composition, perspective and colors to gardening.

The house is very authentic. You will see the first studio later to become the smoking-room, Monet’s and Alice’s separate bedrooms and bathrooms, the yellow dining-room with its extensive collection of Japanese woodblocks and the kitchen decorated with blue tiles.

Your guide will tell you how Monet transformed the house, a former farm, to his own taste. Thanks to many details about Monet’s family life in this very place you will take a leap backwards to the 19th Century.
