A day in Giverny, info to know

As you may guess from the How to Spend your Time in Paris section, I like recommend going outside Paris too. That is why Giverny is a good idea for who is coming in the city!

Just think about taking a day to go outside the chaos of the big city to discover something really special. Giverny is not so far from Paris and it is known all over the world because is the town of Claude Monet. You can still admire some of the most beautiful gardens that inspired his art!

Find out how to go to Giverny by yourself and info about a recommended tour!

If you want to visit this town by yourself, you need to know that its distance is around 75 km, so 46 miles, from Paris. There are not so many buses or trains that go to Giverny, so I think you could rent a car if you don’t want to join a tour. What you will see, in any case, is the place who inspired the greatest impressionsists.
