Abbey Saint Michel/ Church/ Medieval History/


So here we are. The tour you are all searching for!

Our direction is the most popular attractions in France, the fairytale island of Mont St-Michel located on western the coast of Normandy. French are calling this isle the "Marvel of the Occident", some say that it is the pyramid of Keops, some describe it as an imaginary manor-house, stupefying as a dream palace. . .

Follow the steps of the American Division that came to Mont Saint Michel after the landing!

Together we will reach the top of the Abbey, passing great souvenir shops, tasting local specialities like "burning crepes", Calvados and Salty caramel butter cookies!

Taking this tour, you will find your own description of the unique place where each room, each step is interesting and the views are spectacular!

Itinerary

After our arrival at Mont St-Michel we will have a guided walking tour of this iconic attraction.

You will discover this rocky island with a vast bay, stout ramparts and battlements.

Then follow me on a walk to the top of the hilly village, where you'll travel back in time as you enter the fascinating abbey.
