Opening 30 March 2013

by Ariane ~ October 5, 2012

Next year, the Easter week-end is the last week-end of March.

The direction of Fondation Claude Monet has thus decided exceptionnally to open the gardens of Giverny on Saturday 30 March at 9.30am.

This will be two days earlier than the normal date.

The garden will be carpeted with pansies and daffodils.

(This picture was taken this year, the 4th of April.)

Monet’s house and gardens will be open daily from 30 March 2013 till 1 November 2013.

The new admission prices for 2013 are 9.50 euros for an adult, 5.00 euros for a child of 7 or older and for a student, and 4.00 euros for disabled people.

To save time, you can get advance tickets on-line for the same price.

    I will be in Paris 03/30/13 to 04/08/13 to see my daughter in the Paris Marathon on 04/07.
    When would be the best time to see Giverny?
    Thank you, Penny

    I have seen Giverny’s fall gardens and want to see the garden in spring. Do you expect any spring plants might be flowering April 2-9?

  8. Ariane Says:

    Early April is the best time for daffodils, helleborus, mahonias, magnolias…
