Monet, who lived in this Normandy village for 40 years, resided in this charming home that inspired many of his now-famous masterpieces.
Surrounded by a Japanese bridge, waterlilies, and weeping willows, visitors can now see many of the real-life subjects of his artwork.
Inside, the rooms have been restored to their 19th century condition. His bedrooms and studios are open for viewing, complete with reproductions of his paintings.
Passionate about gardening, he created the Clos Normand, where he transferred his knowledge about light and color from painting into his garden.
The best time to visit the Gardens is in the Spring! Giverny is located 75km outside of Paris and an excellent day trip from the city by train.
Opening hours are 9:30am to 6:00pm.
