Monet's Garden, the subject of some of the artist's most famous paintings, makes a nice day trip from Paris. It is really two gardens: a flower garden in front of the house and a water garden inspired by his Japanese print collection. It's in the water garden that you'll find the Japanese bridge and water lilies so familiar to art lovers. His home with its dramatic yellow dining room accented with blue dishes is also on display. Giverny is 75 miles from Paris.
Trains on the Paris / Rouen / Le Havre line leave from St. Lazare Station (also painted by Money). The fastest trains make the trip in under 45 minutes. At the Vernon station, take a taxi or shuttle bus or walk 4 miles (7 k.) along a path on an old railway line.
