If you’re driving to Normandy from Paris, stop in Giverny to visit the house and gardens of French Impressionist Claude Monet. it’s an easy 1 1/2-hour drive from CDG airport in Paris across the beautiful French countryside.
Monet’s paintings, especially the water lilies in his Giverny garden, now grace the walls of museums around the world.
Once inside the Monet house and gardens, the beauty of the large garden and the water lily ponds astounded everyone. For those who have seen Monet’s water lilies in museums, it was an excellent experience.
It’s well worth the drive but go early in the days since it’s also very popular with tour groups.
