Sitting at the top of a rocky islet 1km off the shores between Normandy and Brittany, Mont-Saint-Michel is one of France's most iconic landmarks. Its construction started in the 8th century when the Archangel Michael is said to have instructed a local bishop to build a church atop the island, and it took hundreds of years to be completed, leaving us with an architectural wonder. Once accessible only at low tide, today the site is connected to the mainland via a long causeway. On this tour, you'll explore the Abbey with a guide who will tell you all about its history and stunning architectural details. Before returning to Caen, you'll also visit the lively town of Mont Saint Michel, where you'll have some free time to explore independently and grab lunch.
