If you've ever wondered what it's like to walk into a painting, Monet's Gardens in Giverny is the place to find out. The garden tour begins with a visit to the water garden where Monet painted his famous water lilies. Walk over the green Japanese arch bridge covered in a canopy of wisteria vines and drink in the beauty and serenity of this magical garden. When I walked up the hill toward the maison, I turned the corner to see a field bursting with blooms that literally took my breath away. This time, it was like walking into one of his paintings of irises. A more perfect day trip from Paris cannot be found. Trains and tour buses can be taken from Paris to Giverny, and back again, daily. Don't miss it!

Wonderful place for people who admire Monet's paintings! The gardens are incredibly beautiful and the atmosphere there is much better than I expected. Try to go in a sunny day, it makes a great difference. I totally recommend this visit, and the small village of Giverny is also a great place to spend some hours.

If you are near/in Paris, just take the day to visit this paradise which inspired Monet and his fellow impressionist followers. You will find the gems hidden in numerous masterpiece paintings. Walk the street, stop for a coffee, visit the museum and Monet's house.
Probably best on a nice spring day.

My 14 year-old self would be really stoked that I went to Monet's house and gardens. My current self was probably just tired from the bicycle ride on a clunky rented bike.
The gardens are pretty and it is fun to see the house where all the magic happened, but funny enough my pictures of the place look better then the gardens looked in person. I'm glad I did it, but sadly, I realized my passion for all things Monet have faded more than I thought.

Giverny is a nice little town, but the real reason to go there is to visit Claud Monet's home, garden and water lilies, which are located about a mile outside the town. Best way to get there is rent a bicycle at the train station, and take the beautiful ride thru the country side. The garden is every bit as lovely as in Monet's drawings, and the small home-turned-museum tells a bit more about the artist's life. Walking across the little Japanese bridge over the water pond with the water lilies all around and taking in all the beauty around I felt like I was walking in one of those drawings. Lovely place.
