Come and visit the charming village of Giverny and the House of the master impressionist Claude Monet, his workshop and gorgeous flower gardens including the famous Japanese bridge and water lily pond. You will feel as if you have stepped into one of Monet’s paintings with azaleas, rhododendrons and grasses surrounding you. A preview of what you'll see: http://giverny.org/gardens/fcm/visitgb.htm

After lunch, you will visit the town and the Museum of Impressionisms currently displaying an exhibition of Pierre Bonnard, a postimpressionist painter well-known for his portraits, landscapes and especially his exceptional use of colors. We will then relax in the “Remarkable Gardens” of this prize-winning museum. Visit this museum's site:http://giverny.org/museums/impressionism/
