Late April crowds at Giverny and Versailles?

Jump to last reply

We are planning day trips to Versailles and Giverny on Sunday and Monday,April 22 and 23 and wonder what to expect in the way of crowds. Our dates are inflexible due to the length of time we'll be in Paris and the various closures of places we want to visit. We plan to arrive in both places before the gates open (and plan to have the Paris Museum pass already in hand for Versailles) but wonder what to expect in terms of crowds- i.e. length on time in line to enter-...? We do recognize that Sunday at Versailles will be busy, especially with the fountain show. Our only other option is to go to the Musee d'Orsay on Sunday and then visit Versailles on Tuesday, but the museum is likely to be very crowded on Sunday also, and the fountains will not be on at Versailles on Tuesday! Any opinions out there on this?
Also, would it be worthwhile to buy Giverny tickets ahead of time to pick up at FNAC when we arrive, or can we just buy on-site without wasting too much time?
Thanks for your help.
