A journey in the Impressionist landscape & time.
An immersion in Monet's little paradise! A 6-hour trip, in an oasis of greenery outside of Paris, with tickets included, separate, priority entrance and an hour break for lunch.
The village of Giverny, Monet's Gardens and House, lies 80 km (50 mi) from Paris, on the right bank of the Seine River, at its confluence with one of the two arms of the Epte River, bordered with willows and poplars, in the province of Normandy.
You will see the painter's house and gardens (Water & Normand garden), known as the Father of Impressionism, magically recreated on Monet's canvas, with their trademark water lilies and the Japanese bridge, and you will stroll the cute village of Giverny. You will have an hour for lunch in one of the nearby restaurants at your choice. Then you will enjoy the view of the Old Mill* in Vernon & the castle Roche Guyon*. All together for about 2/two hours.
- *external visit.
- On the road - an hour and a half, one way.
