Completion of the Abbey took hundreds of years

Your tour from Bayeux begins with a drive towards the Mont Saint Michel. Arrive along the coast of Normandy and see the majestic Unesco world heritage listed site of the Mount in the middle of the Bay.

The first church was built on the mount in 709 at the request of Archangel Michael. A couple hundred years later, a small group of Benedictines settled there permanently and the church was enlarged. The first monastery was carved in the rock in the 11th century and gradually got bigger and bigger over the following centuries. In the medieval time, it quickly became an important destination for pilgrims, just like Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

The construction of the abbey as we know it nowadays was finished in the 13th and 14th centuries, and the grand chancel was replaced in the 15th century. Those hundreds of years of architectural prowess have left us with a magnificent monument, now referred as the “Wonder of the Western World”.

Visit the Unesco World Heritage Site of Mont Saint Michel

During your Mont St Michel day trip, you will start by traveling from Bayeux to the Mont Saint Michel, which you will access via a shuttle and the bridge in accordance with local requirements. While on the road, make sure to take it all in and observe the beauty of the Normandy coastline. Locally, the Mount has always been in the middle of a feud between Normandy and Brittany as to in which region the site belongs to.

Our Mont Saint Michel tour will then take you to the abbey itself, at the very top of the mount where the Benedictine Abbey is located. During this walking tour, the history of its construction will be explained in detail and while you are there, make sure to snap some pictures of the amazing views on the surrounding bay! Follow a guided tour of the abbey and then enjoy some free time for personal discovery and lunch.

Mont Saint Michel is also a lively village

After the visit of the abbey, our guide will set you free to explore the town at your own pace and bring back some souvenirs for friends and family. Your guide will also suggest some great restaurants for lunch. Of course, if you still have some questions about the history or the architecture of the Mont Saint Michel, your private guide will remain available for you.

After your visit of Mont Saint Michel, it will be time to make your way back to Bayeux.

There are roughly 350 stairs that you will need to climb to reach the Abbey - around 200 stairs are in the village itself and the remaining 150 are within the Abbey. Therefore, if you have reduced mobility then the safer option is to stay in the village. This tour is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.

    Yes, after the morning guided visit of the Abbey, the rest of your time at the Mont Saint Michel is for you to enjoy. You can either stay a bit more at the top of the Mount or decide to make your way back down slowly. On your way, don't hesitate to take some of the smaller side streets that are less crowded and that can lead to some stunning views over the Bay.
