Giverny, French Rivers



About Giverny

Close to the mooring spot in Vernon is the village of Giverny, which Claude Monet first spotted while looking out of a train window.

From 1883 to 1926 he made it his home and his beloved gardens became the subject of more than 500 paintings. Instantly recognisable sights include the lily pond and arched bridge immortalised in his work.

In addition to coach excursions, most river ships carry bikes and active passengers can opt to cycle to the gardens along the train track that has now been converted into a bike path.
