Giverny

Giverny, home of the the Claude Monet Foundation, among other entities, is a small village about an hour west of Paris (by train to the town of Vernon, then a bus to Giverny itself).

The Monet Foundation property consists of three entities: the water lily garden the walled garden and the house. Those are shown in order below.

In Giverny there are also restaurants, a hotel, galleries, and the Museum of American Artists (MAA)--a modest collection of paintings by American artists who studied in France, some with Monet at Giverny. The gardens at the MAA were quite different from those at the Monet garden and were, I thought quite appealing. The walk back to Vernon, was an adventure in itself.
