Giverny has a world-renowned garden created by impressionist painter Claude Monet. But this garden is in fact, divided in two parts. The flower garden also called the Clos Normand, where the main pink house stands. Full of perspectives, symmetries and colours with its numerous flowerbeds, it changes its appearance according to the season. The water garden accross the road, became later his main source of inspiration for the Waterlilies. To complete your journey, enjoy a guided tour at the musee de l’Orangerie, at the musee Marmottan-Monet or at the musee d’Orsay.

My favorite trips around Paris
Join me on one of my favourite guided trips around Paris. Enjoy a visit of la Malmaison, the splendid house where Napoleon and Josephine resided during the Consulate. Monet’s garden at Giverny is a very relaxing and peacefull area, at lunch time especially. Vaux-le-Vicomte is according to me the best palace to discover outside Paris, contemporary to Versailles, but less busy.
