The village of Giverny is located in Normandy at 70 km (43 miles) from Paris and the drive lasts around 1h15.
In Giverny the master of impressionism Claude Monet (1840-1926) lived half of his life, from 1883 until 1926.
This is where he did some of his most famous art works such as the Nympheas.
The last who lived in the house was Monet’s second son : Michel.
He died in 1966 and then the house was donated to the Fine Arts Academy including the private collection of Claude Monet. Now those painting are in the musée Marmottan in Paris or in the musée d’orsay.
You will have time on your own to see the house and have a coffee in the tiny village of Giverny.
You will be showed the church Sainte Radegonde behind which Claude Monet and members of his family are burried.
