This combo private day trip from Paris allows you to visit Giverny, and its not-to-be-missed Claude Monets gardens as well as one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe, Rouen. Delight within its medieval city center and its famous cathedral. Get picked up at your hotel early in the morning, travel toward Normandy by way of a spacious luxury van, and take a panoramic sightseeing tour passing the French countryside.
Upon pick-up by your private driver and guide from your hotel in or around Paris at 8:00am in a luxurious, air-conditioned van. Your ride to Claude Monet gardens should take a little bit over one hour. The tour is completely private and once booked, you do not share it with other guests. This makes the tour more personal and flexible.
Once at Giverny your guide walk through the village with your guide, and visit Claude Monet's house with its gardens (on your own - €9,50 per person) and the Impressionist museum (€7,50 per person). Around noon enjoy a great lunch at the Hôtel Baudy, which was a center of artistic life in the Giverny heyday (lunch €20-€25, at your own expense).
After the lunch you will head to Rouen. This city was once one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe. Accompanied by your guide you will sightsee its wonderfully preserved historical center with some of its half-timber houses dating back to the 14th century. You will visit the ossuary Saint-Maclou, which was once a cemetery built for the Great Plague as well as the famous Notre Dame cathedral, which was the subject of a series of paintings by Claude Monet and the "Old Square Place" where Joane of Arc was burnt at the stake.
Around 4:00pm return to Paris, 6:00pm drop off to your hotel or apartment.
