TOUR DESCRIPTION
 
Paris Tour - This Paris day trip visits Giverny to tour the home and gardens where French Impressionist artist Claude Monet lived in the late 1800s.

After meeting your guide at your hotel, you immediately depart for the town of Giverny and the small pink house with green shutters that Monet rented. He selected the town after seeing its quaint beauty from a train window. He loved to garden, and immediately began to design the landscape to suit his artistic ideal.

As he became more well known and his paintings began to sell, he was able to purchase the house and some additional land nearby. There he added a water garden and a Japanese bridge to frame his favorite water lilies. This is the garden you see today, the subject of his most famous works, known as the water lily series. Many of his artist friends think his garden was his greatest masterpiece.

The original home has been restored, and much like the painter's pallet, each room represents a different color decorated with Monet's collection of Japanese art. Nearby the atelier (design studio) which was added to the property in 1916 features large copies of his works. Monet lived in the house until his death in 1926.

At the end of the visit, you are driven back to your hotel in Paris.
