Monet's Garden

It is said that Monet saw the village of Giverny, France from the window of a passing train and vowed to live there. He moved there in 1883 and lived there until his death in 1926. Many of his most famous paintings like the water-lily series were completed there.

As Monet became wealthier, his garden was enlarged, eventually having seven gardeners under his direction.

In 1980 the gardens were restored and opened to the public, they have become a major tourist attraction.
