Approximately 9 Hours
The inspiration for Claude Monet's Impressionist genius began here in Normandy, in the tiny village of Giverny.
Travel about two hours by motorcoach through rural France to Monet's famous garden and farmhouse so memorably captured in the works of the master. Discover for yourself the lily ponds, the footbridge, the winding paths and the immaculately tended, landscaped gardens of the artist's home and studio.
Inside the house, you will see pastel-colored rooms, rustic furniture, and the Japanese engravings that Monet himself hung on the colorful walls.
Before leaving Giverny, take advantage of a chance to wander through the Musée des Impressionismes, dedicated to the Impressionist movement in the broad sense of the term, both in France and abroad.
Lunch is served at a local restaurant before you return to Le Havre.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Shade is limited; to avoid sunburn, wear light, long clothing suitable for use as a cover-up. Bring a hat and sunglasses; wear biodegradable sunscreen. Bring bottled water.
