Summary

Discover one of France’s most popular destinations, the stunning island of Mont Saint-Michel and its bay. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Europe’s major pilgrimage location. Experience an exceptional day in the company of a professional guide and discover the history and the riches of this "Wonder of the West" through an enthusiastic commentary.

Welcomed by your guide and the driver, board an air-conditioned coach in central Paris, for a scheduled departure at 7:15 am. The journey will take about 4 hours, giving you time to admire the beautiful landscapes of the French countryside paraded before your eyes. The trip will be enlivened by occasional presentations by the guide on the day’s events and on Mont-Saint-Michel. You’ll be able to take a break during an en-route stop of around twenty minutes.

Arrive at your destination at around 11:30 am. Your guide will take you to Le Relais Saint Michel restaurant, where you will be served a lunch introducing you to the region’s culinary specialties. While savouring this meal, you’ll enjoy an incomparable view of the Mont.

You’ll then board a shuttle bus taking you right to the edge of the village of Mont-Saint-Michel.

Your guide will explain how this emblematic French site has been placed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The guide will present the island’s attractions as you climb the Grande Rue leading up to the top of the Mont. This will take you to the magnificent Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel, where you’ll receive a guided tour of this flagship monument. A masterpiece of Gothic architecture dedicated to the Archangel Saint Michel, this Benedictine abbey is uniquely beautiful, just like its superb cloisters with their peaceful atmosphere. Its dark corridors contrast with the incredible light illuminating its newly remodelled central garden. You will be taken through the various rooms of the abbey, spread over three floors, as your guide explains the daily life of the monks and the history of the building. You’ll see the cellar where the provisions were stored, admire the majestic chimneys of the Salle des hôtes (visitors’ dining room) and tour the immense refectory where the monks shared their meals. After a one-hour visit to the abbey, your guide will lead you outside, where you’ll have a chance to admire the exceptional view across the bay afforded by your vantage point at the top of this great rocky peak.

After one last commentary, the guide will give you some free time to wander through this authentic village. You’ll be amazed by the charming view of Mont-Saint-Michel emerging from above the historic traffic-free streets. The ramparts of this magnificent fortress will provide you with a fantastic panorama of the sea. During your walk, you can also stop off in souvenir shops or taste specialties such as the famous Breton crêpe pancake or biscuits from Mère Poulard.

With these images fresh in your mind, you’ll meet up again with your guide for a 4:30 pm departure for Paris. The scheduled time of arrival back in Paris is around 9:15 pm, depending on traffic conditions.

Departure Time: 7:15 am

Meeting Point: 2 rue des Pyramides 75001 Paris
