Unguided Excursion to Mont Saint Michel from Paris

5/5 (19 reviews)
  • Description

Set off for a day trip that allows you to design your own itinerary, between the sea and the sky! Visit one of France's most iconic sights, the stunning UNESCO World Heritage listed island of Mont Saint Michel and its bay. Discover the magnificent medieval abbey at the island's summit, a historical masterpiece. Take advantage of the opportunity to experience the magic of the island and the breath-taking sight of the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, at the mercy of the tides.

Leave our agency in Central Paris at 7:15 a.m. for an exceptional day at Mont Saint Michel. Relax on the journey by luxury air-conditioned coach from Paris and take in the beautiful green landscapes of the Normandy countryside as you reach Mont Saint Michel at around 12 noon. 

Visit the base of the island of Mont Saint Michel on foot; a unique fortified rocky outcrop, it dates 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 until 4:30 p.m. Return to Paris scheduled for approximately 9:15 p.m.

Mont Saint Michel was spectacular!!!
Wanted to do unguided and reclaim the hour from the guided tour lunch. The reader pens and map they gave were perfect.
Great service!
Nice and comfortable bus and good unguided Tour.
The tour was perfect for me. Everything was well-organized and quite punctual. In addition to conveyance and entrance ticket, I also received a map and an audio-guide which were very useful. I would highly recommend this trip.
As I wished, I enjoyed being free to move around Mont Saint-Michel and had time to take the pictures I wanted. I did not want to waste time sitting in a restaurant. The place was crowded, but not confusing for independent visitors. Necessary services were available.
Very good
