Full description
Combine your visits to Giverny and Rouen into one relaxing day trip just 2 hours outside of Paris. Your tour starts in the authentic Norman city of Rouen, where Claude Monet painted the Cathedral series, inspired by the Notre Dame Cathedral of Rouen. Your walking tour through the streets of Rouen will bring centuries of history to life and give you the chance to discover sights, such as the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Renaissance Parliament of Normandy, the magnificent Hotel de Bourgtheroulde, the St. Joan of Arc church and the old marketplace. Enjoy a fascinating walk through the architectural styles of the last 800 years in this beautiful town full of history. In the afternoon, your guide will share the calm and almost otherworldly beauty of Claude Monet’s home and gardens in Giverny. Learn about the famous Impressionist artist and before exploring his vibrantly colored home, stroll along the charming paths of his flower garden and admire the water garden with the little green bridge and lake full of his famous water lilies before returning back to Paris.

Melody was a SUPER tour guide and knew the history and trivia well.

We were more than pleased with this day trip. Every aspect was very enjoyable and interesting. Melody took us to Monet garden and lily pond before it got crowded. She gave us excellent points of information about Monet and his life, and pointed out specific views that Monet painted in his paintings. Rouen was very interesting and fun. Hit all the right spots of historical significance.
