FRANCE 2009: CLAUDE MONET AND GIVERNY FRANCE
October 2, 2009
Giverny is reached by train from Gare Lazare and a shuttle bus. Claude Monet lived and painted here in this town which is maintained both as an artist’s colony and a
most popular tourist attraction featuring his house and gardens.
The Gardens are themed by color and are built along the paths to a modern art gallery as well as within Monet’s own property.
Across the road are the carefully maintained lily pond gardens featured in so many of Monet’s paintings.
The colors despite this late date were still magnificent as with these geraniums just in front of the entrance to Monet’s home.
After lunch at Les Nymphéas Café we toured around the quaint village of Giverny with old cottages and the Ancien Hotel Baudy
