Giverny is well known for its water lily pond. This charming village seduced Claude Monet. It seems to have preserved all its charm to this day.
Strolling through Giverny is like travelling back in time, in a village that seems to have been frozen in the time of the Impressionists. Many restaurants that seem to be from the past welcome you for a gourmet break during your visits.
From March to November, the Claude Monet Foundation opens the doors of the painter’s house and its luxurious garden to you. Walk in the footsteps of the impressionist master to the Japanese bridge where he painted his famous series of paintings Les Nymphéas. The Green’s advice: visit Giverny in the spring, when the flowers colour all the streets and Monet’s garden!
During the same period, the Impressionists’ Museum is open. This young museum focuses on the history of Impressionism and Postimpressionism, but also on their impact on 20th century art.
Do you have any time left? Enter the Roman Sainte-Radegonde church and discover beautiful stained glass windows, furniture and statues.
Tourist information is available on Giverny website.
