Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

Mont Saint Michel is named after the massive monastery on the island. It was a strategic stronghold for France ever since the early 8th century AD and was instrumental in keeping invaders at bay throughout the middle ages. The city held firm against the English during the Hundred Years War and also served as a prison under Louis XI.
Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that sees over 3 million visitors each year. More than 60 of the commune’s buildings are protected as ‘monuments historiques’ by the French Government.

The beaches of the island are subjected to some of the harshest tidal forces. When the tide is low, the beach is sandy and beautiful to look at. At high tide, the island is completely surrounded by water. The town itself is structured in typical medieval fashion, complete with an abbey adjoining the main building of the monastery at the top, massive halls, stores and housing, and finally the fishermen’s colony outside the walls. The island is a shining example of medieval French culture.

Your Experience

This full-day excursion to the most iconic island-city of France begins with a drive through the gorgeous green fields and wilderness of the Normandy countryside. You will reach Mont Saint Michel by 12 noon. Enjoy a delectable spread at the local restaurant with a brilliant view of Mont Saint Michel.

Your guided walking tour of the city will begin shortly after lunch. The Benedictine Abbey dedicated to the Archangel Michael at the very top of the island is a sight to behold. The archaic Gothic building spans over three floors. Explore the refectory and cloister of the monastery and learn more about these parts of the monument from the expert guide. End your tour with a walk along the ramparts. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the open sea that stretches all the way to the horizon before browsing through the many local shops, sampling some crêpes, or simply absorbing the incredible atmosphere of Mont Saint Michel until 4.30 PM. The bus will then take you back to Paris by 9.15 PM.
