Photo Friday: Giverny Village.
For quite some time, I’ve always wanted to visit the town of Giverny in France. This past summer I did just that on an educational tour.
Standing as the gateway to Normandy, the charming village of Giverny is widely known for being the residence of Claude Monet. It is here where he painted those famous water lilies that one could admire for hours on end.
Less than an hour from Paris, Giverny has retained its medieval atmosphere and is considered part of French national heritage. No stranger to visitor groups, the village of Giverny makes for a wonderful stop on any student tour in the area. Serving as a refuge for numerous Impressionist artists, students have the chance to take a cultural walking tour and see such sites as the British aviator’s memorial, Impressionist museum, and Monet’s home and gardens among other historic sites all within walking distance.
Stay tuned for when I’ll discuss in greater detail the advantages of students visiting this historic village on their educational tour.
Perhaps it’s always been on their bucket list. 🙂
