Giverny is the home and gardens of Monet. Most of Monet's waterlily and Japanese brige paintings were done here. While Monet lived there, the gardens were meticulously cared after by Monet and the gardeners he employed. He had a boat he would take out everyday to tend to the waterlilies and tie bags of fertilizer to the roots so that he would have perfect subjects to create beautiful paintings.

His home and gardens are now open to the public with tours and everything. Of course this means that everyone and their mother is there. The gardens are still beautiful because there is quite a bit of revenue generated from tourists and his house still has a lot of his original furniture and art that he owned.
