What to expect
During this half-day excursion from Le Havre, you will discover the charming village of Giverny Claude Monet and the city of Rouen, where Joan of Arc was condemned and burned in 1431.
The first stop of your excursion will be in Giverny, famous for housing the house and garden where Claude Monet lived and painted his most beautiful canvases! You will visit his pretty pale pink house with green shutters and his studio whose walls are covered with reproductions of Monet's paintings as they were in his lifetime. You will then marvel at the feast of flowers that surrounds the house. Other surprises await you, including the water lily pond and the famous Japanese bridge.
After a lunch break, the rest of your visit will continue in the authentic Norman city of Rouen where Claude Monet painted the Cathedral series, inspired by the Notre Dame Cathedral of Rouen. You will also discover the main places not to be missed, such as the old town of Rouen, the yawning renaissance arcade of the Great Clock, the courthouse, the Jeanne d'Arc square, and many others! You will be charmed by this real museum city, with its beautiful half-timbered houses, cobbled streets, and gothic churches.
