France: Giverny Gardens
The Giverny gardens are probably the most famous in France. Monet created some of his famous ‘Water Lily’ and ‘Japanese Bridge’ paintings here. As well as the gardens you can also visit Monet’s lovely and very colourful house. Monet started his famous water garden by digging a small pond and expanding upon it; he then remodelled the landscapes and gardens about it to better inspire his work, or as he put it, “I’m good for nothing except painting and gardening”.
