The artist spent half his life here, dividing his time between working on his garden, a living painting if ever there was one, and the great passion of his final years, the Water Lilies series. You will be free to explore the house, which houses Monet's private collection of Japanese prints, and the garden, a haven of greenery. Enjoy a "Guingette” evening on board.
This morning will be spent cruising. In the afternoon, join us on a thematic guided tour of Rouen in the footsteps of the Impressionists (the Musée des Beaux-Arts is closed on Tuesdays and public holidays, the visit will thus be replaced by the Eugène Boudin Museum in Honfleur, our stop on D6). Tonight is our gala dinner and evening.
We'll spend this morning cruising on the most beautiful section of the Seine with its numerous meanders and sleepy villages which have inspired many a painter. Third thematic presentation: "The geography of Impressionism: Paris and the suburbs, Honfleur and the Norman coast”. We'll reach Duclair and set out for our excursion along the Norman Abbey Circuit.
