monet house crowds in late april

I would imagine late april would be a VERY popular time for monet house tours? I can understand why, but we had a bad experience with the Vatican last spring.

We were herded in and shuffled through like cattle. Shoulder to shoulder packed. Impossible to appreciate what you were looking at

It was our most crowded and thing and our only bad Italy experience.

Think the monet tour would be the same?

No, it's not as crowded as the Vatican! If you go early in the day, having bought your tickets ahead, you can enter thru the group entrance and get into the gardens before the crowd. Last time I was there was July and the only spots that were crowded were the bridges while people waited their turn for a photo.

You can go to Vernon and then to Monet's house and garden then, after paying the entrance fee, browse at your leisure. There is no one pushing you through. IMO it's the best way to enjoy the place.

Is it already green in late April? I'm assuming it is. April in Paris and all.
