After being picked up at your hotel or apartment in Paris in the morning (or if you prefer, in the afternoon) your licensed tour guide will drive you to Giverny, a charming village in Normandy of 500 inhabitants, 50 miles away from Paris. You will be able to visit there Monet's property, his home and gardens, where the famous impressionist artist lived half of his life between 1886 and 1926. Left by his son Michel to the Académie des Arts in 1966, Monet's estate will reopen in 1980, after extensive renovations.
