Our day began with some exploring via velib a little further up along the Canal Saint Martin. This is an area we can heartily recommend for staying in Paris. Out of the really tourist areas, but lots of wonderful bars and restaurants and a great ambience of creative energy.
Further up the canal, it’s bordered by hire boat wharfs and a range of cafes and other bars and eateries.
We need to get to Rue des Pyramides to join our tour to Giverny, so we find a bike dock using the City Bikes app, and the nearest Metro station before a trip down to Pyramides metro station and a light lunch before a trip of about ninety minutes west of Paris to Vernon and the village of Giverny.
It is absolutely amazing to see and experience the gardens and the water lily pond. We find that it is well worth the trip, and hopefully the slideshow below can share some of the beautiful images. Tomorrow we’re on our way to Spain!
