Journey to Monet's Garden, a site famous in art history for being the real-life inspiration for many of Claude Monet's iconic paintings. Your adventure begins with a scenic drive through the dairy country of Normandy to the village of Giverny where Claude Monet, the leader of the Impressionist School, lived from 1883 to 1926. Admire the artist's beautiful house, with its pink crushed brick facade and colorful decor. See reproductions of Monet's paintings and admire beautiful Japanese engravings. The highlight of your visit is a stroll through the famous garden. See the iconic Japanese Bridge with its wisteria, azaleas, and ponds with water lilies. It was here that Monet painted his famous Water Lilies series. See the inspiration for some of Monet's most famous pieces. You'll feel like you've stepped foot inside a painting.
