Trade the bustle of Paris for the peaceful, rocky, island village of Mont St.-Michel by way of Normandy. This full-day, round-trip, guided tour onboard a coach transports you to medieval times for lunch and a tour in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire the scenery, architecture, and explore the ancient hilltop eighth-century Benedictine abbey. Enjoy free time to wander the streets and gaze out over the Pacific Ocean.

What to Expect

If you did not upgrade to include hotel pickup and drop-off, your day trip to Mont St.-Michel starts as you meet your coach in central Paris for the 3.5-hour drive west to one of France's most popular destinations: the Normandy coast.

Arrive in Mont St.- Michel, a small and rocky island village where you enjoy an included lunch and drink (see sample menu).

Afterwards, take a walking tour with your guide through the medieval streets and learn about the town’s eighth-century abbey and its past as pilgrimage destination in the middle ages. Hear the story of its founding by the bishop of Avranches who said he beheld a vision of Michael the Archangel, and admire the ramparts and rectory.

After the tour, enjoy free time to explore, shop, visit museums, and take in the ocean-side scenery before returning to your drop-off point in central Paris or at your hotel.

Nice trip

The trip includes a long bus ride to and from Mount Stw Michael. That was well organized. However the guides should have used some of the time to provide more information about the history and development of the church and nearby community. That would have...More

I was there bout four hours...which really was enough time. I am sure it is lovely to spend the night there and see Mont St. Michele all lit up, but I did a day trip from Paris
