Relax on the journey by luxury air-conditioned coachfrom Paris and take in the beautiful green landscapes of the Normandy countryside as you reach Mont Saint Michel at around noon.
Visit the base of the island of Mont Saint Michel on foot; a unique fortified rocky outcrop, dating back to the middle Ages and is surrounded by a vast bay with one of the biggest tides in Europe. Climb right up to the top of the island to the captivating Benedictine abbey, which dates from the 8th Century. A wonderful example of Gothic architecture on three floors, it is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. Visit the cloister, the imposing refectory, and the abbey's charming garden, looking out to sea.
Make the most of your time at the abbey with a walk along the ramparts and walls; the landscape will take your breath away as you breathe in the sea air. The sand stretches as far as the eye can see at low tide and the island is cut off by the sea at high tide. You may also decide to spend time visiting Mont Saint Michel's museums, indulging in some souvenir shopping, watching the hustle-and-bustle of village life, or sampling local crêpes. Return to Paris at approximately 21:15.
