The private driver will pick you up early in the morning to enjoy your Mont Saint-Michel private tour, and drive you to the coast of Normandy while the guide tells you about the rich history of this region (not least of all owing to the heroic deeds of the World War II American, French, Canadian soldiers as well as allies from other nations). The mountain of Saint Michel overlooks the entire coast from the island with many prominent crags. One can easily distinguish it even from far away because of its unique shape. But what is even more stunning is the tidal range of this area that makes many people say that between St Michel and the mainland, there is neither sea nor land.
Itinerary: Mont Saint-Michel private guided tour
After the arrival, you are going to walk the paved streets of the island to the abbey situated at the highest elevation of the island. It was constructed in the VIII century, and the guide is going to tell you many stories behind that unique building of the past. This place used to attract pilgrims in the Middle Ages and was a cultural capital of the region at some point in time. The sights you are about to see are during Mont St-Michel private tour:
— Romanesque church;
— Monks’ cloisters and the frater house;
— The Chamber of Knigts;
— The Crypt;
— The Chapel of Saint Stephen;
— The Chapel of Saint Martin.
Then, the guide will suggest a dinner at one of the local restaurants (not included in price). After the dinner, you will walk around the city on top of the defensive walls and visit local shops and curious places.
If there is time after your Mont St-Michel private guided tour (depends on the high tides), on the way back, the guide will show you the Villedieu-les-Poeles village with dozens of artisanal workshops that offer a variety of hand-crafted souvenirs made of tin, iron, copper, hide, or braiding.
