Mont Saint Michel was amongst the most important island fortifications of France during the Medieval period. An Irish hermit founded the island with a small local gathering of his followers in the 8th century AD. The island held strong against successive assaults during the Hundred Years War between France and England in the 14th and 15th centuries. The site was popularly known as 'St. Michel in the peril of the sea' by pilgrims of the middle ages due to the violent tides that the island experiences, varying up to 14 metres between high tide and low tide water levels.
This tour of Mont Saint Michel is structured to ensure that you do not have to stick to a strict schedule. The island is best experienced organically. The bus will leave Paris early in the morning and take you to the northwestern coast of France. Feast your eyes on the brilliant French countryside on your way to Normandy. Your guide will also give you interesting tidbits of information about the island and its history.
Visit the abbey of Mont Saint Michel and admire the beautiful interiors. An audio guide will help you understand the monument better. For lunch, you have a vast array of options. Try out rustic dishes at the small eateries or choose to have a more sophisticated dining experience at one of the larger restaurants in the area. Bask in the irresistible medieval atmosphere one last time before heading back to Paris in your comfortable bus.
