Exploring Claude Monet's last home
Just a short train ride north of Paris is a beautiful little town where Claude Monet's last home is located. It has been turned into a museum and is the location of the gardens that inspired so many of Monet's most famous works of art (think lily pads and Japanese bridges). I highly recommend going in the warmer months so you can see the flowers in full bloom...gorgeous!

Giverny in May!
One way to beat the crowds in Monet's Garden at Giverny is to visit in the early spring. This is a great time to visit because that's when the tulips are blooming. The entire garden is filled with tulips of every size, shape, and color! We traveled in early May. France was having a late spring and we still needed coats. We arrived in the morning, which was a good time to visit. As the day progressed, the garden became more crowded.
