“It's worth the long bus ride from Paris (it's a very comfortable bus) - an amazing place to visit and our team of guides were absolutely lovely. Having the guide give you all the historical info is a must, so I would suggest doing the guided tour rather than the 'on your own option' but each to their own! ...Priscilla H., Australia – See more reviews
What To Expect
Officially inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1979, Mont Saint Michel is best known for the well-preserved Norman Benedictine Abbey of St. Michel, its medieval architecture, and shifting shores that disappears upon high tide. It is linked to the mainland via a seawall. This Western Marvel is unique in the world and dredging works are constantly being carried out to ensure that the bay keeps its unique maritime characteristic.
To get to Mont Saint Michel, you'll drive through Normandy. Your guide will tell you about the varied history of this region while you soak in the beauty of its landscape. You will pass by the picturesque village of Beuvron-en-Auge, one of the most beautiful villages of France, before reaching Mont St Michel.
Upon your arrival, you will have lunch in a restaurant on the Mount or facing the Mount where you can benefit from an extraordinary view. The afternoon starts with a visit of the Abbey with the guide. Built on a rocky islet, this abbey was a great cultural center and a pilgrimage destination in the Middle-Ages. Even then, the Mount was exerting an international influence. The fullness of the cloister and its gardens makes allows you to relax as you stroll along the refectory and watch the impressive wheel of the monks boneyard. You will also be given free time to explore the steep and narrow streets of the village and criss-cross the fortifications to
admire the gorgeous view over the Mont Saint-Michel bay.
