Fondation Monet in Giverny Travel Recommendations for 2024 (Updated in Mar)
Giverny, the world-famous garden town in France, is an original art town
Monet's Garden is the former residence of the famous French painter Monet, divided into a water garden and a flower garden. The flower garden, also known as the Normandy Garden, is located in front of the house, rectangular in shape, covering about one hectare. The water garden is an artificial lake, filled with water lilies!
Monet did not plant flowers according to their varieties in different places, but mixed all kinds of flowers, from the most common to the rarest, together!
Not only are they staggered in height, but they also pay great attention to the coordination of colors. Red, brown, orange, blue and other tones of flowers are scattered among them, presenting a natural visual dynamism!
🇫🇷Monet's former residence. Come with me to see Monet's 'Water Lilies', all the beautiful scenery here has appeared in Monet's paintings many times! I envy him so much, every day I can see herds of cows and seas of flowers as soon as I open the window.

The most beautiful town in France | The stunning Monet garden
🏞️[Destination Guide] Monet is one of my favorite Impressionist painters. When I visited France in 2019, I was lucky enough to take a break and visit the small town of Giverny, 70 kilometers west of Paris, where Monet's private garden is located. Walking in, I couldn't help but marvel at how beautiful Monet's old house and garden were! No wonder he painted so many masterpieces in such a stunning setting!
🧳Pre-trip preparation: You can rent a car or sign up for a one-day tour product on Ctrip, which is very convenient. The shuttle service to and from Paris is provided on the same day.
🍽Food Guide: There are many Western food options in the small town, remember there is a famous steakhouse, and of course there are other options such as sandwich shops, Western fast food, and coffee shops.
🛍️Shopping Guide: There is a souvenir shop in Monet's Garden, where you can buy exquisite art objects. I bought two sets of playing cards with 54 classic paintings by Monet, and also bought colored pencils in Monet's colors.
💗Travel experience: I was sitting on a bench admiring the beautiful scenery of the lotus pond, and I met an old lady from Switzerland wearing a white bohemian-style dress and applying nude pink lipstick, posing in various ways, asking me to take photos of her! As a return, she also took many photos for me. She said she loves this place very much, came here yesterday, came again today, and will come tomorrow. I think the Monet Garden is really well maintained by the staff, so even after so many years, the scenery is still beautiful. Facing this scene, the artistic cells in the hearts of every tourist are awakened...
📌Small tip: Spring is the most beautiful time to visit Monet's garden, with various flowers blooming and every shot being picturesque!

Speaking of Elephant Trunk Hill, we must first talk about the French painter Monet, one of the founders of Impressionism, and also its representative. You should have heard of the famous "Sunrise Impression"?
Monet was born in Paris. At the age of 5, the family moved to Le Havre in the Normandy region. So when he grew up, Monet painted his hometown of Le Havre. Not only that, the Elephant Trunk Hill near Le Havre became a Monet dish.
With Monet's eyes on the country, the scenery in front of him becomes an oil painting.
Back to Elephant Trunk Hill, as the name suggests, is the mountain that looks like a nose. There are three elephant trunk mountains in the Elephant Trunk Mountain Scenic Area. Because it is also called Elephant Trunk Hill, it is a friendly scenic spot with the Elephant Trunk Hill in Guilin.

Cathedral of Our Lady of Rouen. This is a very standard Gothic building. Monet has painted dozens of different colors of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Rouen, all without exception.

Come, you feel, I chose a color I like, blue is the warmest color.
As an ancient city with a thousand-year history, strolling through the streets of Rouen in Rouen, the monuments are not difficult to pick up - the Cathedral of Our Lady, the Church of St. Markalu, the Church of Joan of Arc... Its really silly to not do the homework in advance. As the landmark building of Rouen, the Cathedral of Our Lady attracts countless visitors from all over the world. The exterior is gorgeous and shocking. The interior is solemn and solemn. The camera is set aside and prays like a local person to find inner peace.
