Pick up at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie (CDS)
Set off for 2 days/1 night excursion to one of France’s most popular and iconic sights, the magnificent island of Mont Saint Michel and its bay, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage site. Your guide will tell you everything you need to know about the stunning medieval abbey at the top of the rocky island, a genuine historical masterpiece.
Then take your time to soak up the magic of the island and the beauty of its bay, which changes with the rise and fall of the tides: Mont Saint Michel is 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 levels, dedicated to the Archangel Michael. Visit the cloister, the refectory, and the abbey’s charming garden, overlooking the sea.
