Small group tour
Discover the unparalleled beauty of the home and gardens of Claude Monet where he lived and painted for the last 40 years of his life. Visit the interior of his home and then stroll through the two distinctly unique gardens which Monet himself designed and modified throughout his life.
Join our half-day trip from Paris and you’ll see a hundred different types of flowers and foliage intertwining to create the living art in Monet’s Flower Garden. Then you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into one of his paintings when you visit the Japanese garden. Seeing the lake full of water lilies you’ll understand why Monet used this garden as the inspiration for over 250 of his paintings.

Visit the interior of Monet’s house and see the brightly colored rooms and admire dozens of works that were gifted to him by his famous artist friends.
See and learn all about the, once rare, colorful water lilies which Monet chose for his pond and used as his main inspiration for so many of his paintings.
Planted with more than 100 different types of flowers which bloom for different seasons this garden is breathtakingly beautiful at all times of the year.
This is where Monet spent most of his time painting the ever changing aspects of the waterlilies in his pond.
Monet loved black pepper and would put two huge tablespoons of it into all of his salads.
