A visit to discover Giverny where the famous painter Claude Monet lived. Giverny is located in Normandy 1 h from Paris.
Hard to describe this walk, MoneyLand? Everything looks so artificial in Giverny. Auvers-Sur-Oise for Van Gogh and Barbizon for Jean-François Millet seem much more authentic. Here we feel that everything is being done to pull out his wallet. You must absolutely avoid the visit on Sunday or on French bank holiday, there is too much people ! The Japanese garden is pretty but we see the same everywhere. After I think that the visit in September should be more interesting. The Monet Foundation which manages the House of Monet, and the Museum of the impressionisms next to it close from November 1 until spring. The banks of the Seine and the region are beautiful, Monnet was right but not need to visit this house.
One of the few positive aspects of this walk: the parking is large and free. The site attracts lot of people during the summer months.
The Museum presents temporary exhibitions of artists who have been inspired by the work of Claude Monet. Admission fee: 7 euros. You can easily do without, there are only 2 large rooms to visit. You can see everything in 15 minutes. You have to visit it the first Sunday of the month when the Museum is free.
