Visit Mont Saint-Michel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Explore the historic towns of Bayeux and Caen
Normandy is one of the most dramatic regions in France in terms of history and coastal landscapes. Discover some of the region’s most famous sites starting with Mont Saint-Michel, an island monastery made of ancient fortifications and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend time going through narrow alleys and exploring the impressive abbey. The next day, travel to Bayeux, a town known for its half-timbered houses along cobbled streets, to visit the famous Tapestry Museum and the iconic Gothic cathedral of Bayeux. Continue to Caen to learn about the life of William the Conqueror, the first Norman King of England, and visit other popular attractions, such as the astonishing Abbey of Saint-Étienne and Caen Castle.

Independent arrival from the train station to your hotel. Check in and have the remainder of the day at your own leisure.
Breakfast at your hotel. Afterwards, embark on a Mont Saint Michel day trip, one of France’s most iconic monuments! The Mont Saint Michel is an island off the coast of Normandy, in the English Channel, located about 1 kilometre from the shore and sits in a bay that sees some of the biggest tides in Europe. The first church was built on the mount in 709 at the request of Archangel Michael. A couple of 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 became bigger and bigger over the following centuries. In the medieval times, it quickly became an important destination for pilgrims, just like Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
Early breakfast at your hotel before your private tour starting in Bayeux. Enjoy a visit to the famous Tapestry Museum and Cathedral. Next is a visit to Caen, where you will follow the footsteps of William the Conqueror. Lastly, take a visit to the Castle of Caen as well as the Saint Stephen Abbey.
