A day trip to World Heritage Wonder
From your hotel in Bayeux or Bayeux train station, we will have a long drive heading the south west of Normandy (a major french region about the size of Belgium). MontSaintMichel is an UNESCO World heritage site since 1979, where we will take a shuttle bus service recently organised to reach the island, at three miles away, on which is built an old monastery on hilltop and a village full of restaurants, hotels, and shops at the bottom. MontSaintMichel is all about walking and climbing. You need to be in good shape but we will do it at a feasible pace. Although, it will be literally a step by step explanation of a mysterious island.
We will mostly see MontSaintMichel island and monastery itself.
