Description

This ParisCityVision audio-guided tour allows visitors to retrace the tales of artistic masterpieces – from the museum that exhibits the works to the landscapes that inspired them. In one day, you can follow in Monet’s footsteps: admiring the painter’s most stunning masterpieces at the musée d’Orsay in Paris then going on to discover his home in Giverny, the little Normandy village where the artist lived for more than 40 years.

Step into the canvas

After reserving your trip on the ParisCityVision website, head to the agency beside the Tuileries Garden to pick up your audio-guide, available in several languages. Next, it’s off to the musée d’Orsay, only a short walk away, to discover a wealth of Impressionist masterpieces and find out more about their history.

After lunch, it’s back to the agency to board an air-conditioned minibus that will take you to Giverny, 90 minutes from Paris. Behind its roughcast pink facade, Monet’s house has barely changed from when the artist lived there a century ago. Push open the doors for a visit around this magical time-capsule where the artist lived and worked for much of his life. Next, your audio-guide will lead you across Monet’s famous Walled Normandy Garden, or Clos Normand, to discover the water garden, with its Japanese bridge and magical water-lily pond, immortalized forever by the Impressionist master.
