Tickets — Unless you can get there at opening time, try to buy your tickets to the gardens in advance. Not only will you avoid standing in the extremely slow-moving line at the ticket booth, but you will have the right to use the special entrance for the billet coupe-file (cut-in-front-of-the-line ticket) and walk right in. You can buy your tickets online at the Fondation Claude Monet site, at a Fnac ticket office, or on the Fnac site (in English, www.fnactickets.com). Tickets are 9.50€ for adults (1€ more via FNAC), 5.50€ for ages 7 to 17 and students, and free for children 6 and under.
Visitor Information — The Maison du Tourisme Normandie Giverny is located close to the Fondation Monet at 80 rue Claude Monet (www.normandie-giverny.fr; tel. 02-32-64-45-01).
