"Claude Monet's Garden" Giverny Favorite Tip by Carmanah

Giverny General: 9 reviews and 29 photos

  Claude Monet's lilypads
by Carmanah

Fondest memory: Doesn't this look like something out of a painting? Perhaps a painting by Claude Monet? Well, there's a very good reason for thinking so. I took this photo at Claude Monet's garden in Giverny, just outside of Paris. These are the gardens that surrounded Monet's house, which inspired him to create many of his well known pieces. The waterlilies in the pond are the same waterlilies featured in his paintings of the same name. While at Giverny, you can also tour Monet's house and his art studios.
