Normandy is one of the most dramatic regions in France in terms of history and coastal landscapes.

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.

Independent arrival from the train station to your hotel. Check in and have the remainder of the day at your own leisure.

Day 2
Mont Saint Michel

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.
