  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Rising out of the ocean and surrounded by waves and moving sands, the Mont Saint Michel abbey is an imposing sight. One of Normandy’s historical and architectural wonders, it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    The Mont Saint Michel abbey lies on a rocky islet, largely gothic in style, the monument was built over centuries. An important pilgrimage site in the Middle Ages, it now draws travellers with its dramatic setting and architecture. The abbey reflects a mixture of Norman-Roman and Gothic architectural styles and has a rich history to tell. From the abbey gain a stunning panoramic view of Normandy’s coastline and the crashing waves below.

    Truly an architectural marvel, the Mont Saint Michel abbey will impress with its incredible beauty and fascinating history.

    Itinerary

    You will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned minivan at 6:30am. On the way, a qualified guide will tell you about the history of this region as you enjoy the beauty of the landscape.

    The Mont Saint Michel abbey is built on a rocky islet and lies off the north coast of France. Surrounded by the sea and moving sands, it rises impressively out of the ocean. The structure has a slender spire with a copper statue of Michael the Archangel slaying a dragon. Mont Saint Michel was a great cultural centre and a pilgrimage destination in the Middle-Ages and now draws visitors to explore its Benedictine abbey and marvel at its dramatic setting.

    Once you arrive at the Mont, enjoy lunch at the Terrasses Poulard (in case of overcrowding, lunch can be served in another restaurant) and taste the famous Mont Saint-Michel omelette; a soufflé omelette cooked in a wood-fired oven.

    In the afternoon, take a guided tour of the abbey. The Mont Saint Michel is built out of granite and has impressive Gothic buildings built over the centuries. The La Merveille, literally ‘the marvel’ are buildings on the northern side and there is a beautiful cloister and 13th century refectory. You will also have free time to wander along steep and narrow paths to admire a view of the bay and visit the village.

    You will be returned to your point of arrival in Paris, arriving at around 8:45pm.
