One of the nicest ways to get around in Giverny is to rent a bicycle in Vernon and pedal over the Seine River to Giverny, where a bicycle/pedestrian trail follows the town's former railroad path. Foot traffic is another preferred mode of travel around the village, and hiking trails above the town give you great views and numerous photo opps.

Some people, once they've arrived by train, taxi, or bus to Vernon, like to hire a tour bus around Giverny, taking in the sites, from old mills to the village's castles and mansions. If you want to hire a taxi to get around town, it's least expensive to split the fare with others, of course, otherwise, it can be a little pricey.

If you plan to rent a car while in Giverny, you'll need to have an international driver's permit on hand. Be aware that, as a rule, local drivers tend to be more aggressive than the typical touring visitor. Excessive speed and last minute lane changes are the norm in Normandie. Familiarize yourself with local driving regulations, such as right-of-way rules, which differ from western rules.

Major highways usually have service stations every 25 miles or so in comparison to secondary roads, which typically are not as prolific as they are in, say, the United States.
