A visit to discover Giverny where the painter Claude Monet lived. Giverny is located in Normandy, 1 hour from Paris.
Difficult to describe this walk, tourist attraction? MoneyLand ? Everything looks artificial in Giverny. Auvers-Sur-Oise for Van Gogh and Barbizon for Jean-François Millet seem much more authentic. Here one has the impression that everything is done to take out one's wallet. The Japanese garden is nice but we see the same one everywhere. Every city has a small Japanese garden. After that I think that the visit in September must be more interesting. The Monet foundation which manages Monet's house, and the musée des impressionnismes just next door close from November 1st for the whole winter. The loops of the Seine and the region are beautiful, Monnet was right but you don't need to linger in Giverny! It is better to visit La Roche-Guyon a few kilometers away.
One of the few positive aspects of this walk: the parking is large and free. The site attracts a lot of people in the summer.
The museum presents temporary exhibitions of artists who were inspired by the work of Claude Monet. Price: 7 euros. We can easily do without it, there are simply 2 large rooms. You can see everything in 15 minutes. To visit only the first Sunday of the month when the museum is free.
