Relax on the luxury air-conditioned coach journey and take in the beautiful green landscapes of Normandy as you reach Mont Saint Michel at around 12 noon.
Lunch is included at a modern, elegant restaurant with uninterrupted views of Mont Saint Michel.
After lunch, start with a guided walking tour of Mont Saint Michel, a picturesque fortified rocky outcrop that dates back to the middle Ages and is surrounded by a large bay with one of Europe's most extreme tides. Walk right up to the top of the island to see the fascinating and unique Benedictine abbey. Dating back to the 8th Century, it is a wonder of Gothic architecture on three floors, dedicated to the Archangel Michael. Visit the cloister, the refectory, and the abbey's charming garden, overlooking the sea below.
Then make the most of your free time with a walk along the ramparts and walls. The landscape will take your breath away: the sand stretches as far as the eye can see at low tide or the island is surrounded by the sea at high tide. You can also visit the village's museum, sample some local crêpes, indulge in some shopping, or just watch the world go by in this busy little village. Return to Paris scheduled for around 21.15.
