Exploring The Mont-Saint-Michel
Take a walk through the medieval streets and visit abbey of the Mont-Saint-Michel, followed by a private illumination hands-on workshop.
The Mont-Saint-Michel is truly a must see when visiting Normandy with your family. The iconic abbey and monastery on top of the island dominate a medieval fortified town of 50 inhabitants.
Meet your private, fully-licensed chauffeur-guide at your hotel in Bayeux and hop in a luxurious, fully-equipped V-class minivan to reach the Mont-Saint-Michel. After a 1.5-hour drive, you will reach the parking lot, and take a shuttle bus to the island (if time enables it, you can even walk there).
Follow your guide as he/she takes you through the narrow streets of this medieval town, all the way up to the abbey.
After a detailed and fun-filled visit of the abbey and monastery, where many medieval monks used to copy and illuminate manuscripts back in the Middle-Ages before becoming a prison, your chauffeur-guide will take you to Avranches where you will take part in an interesting illumination hands-on workshop. Just like the medieval monks, you will create your own illumination which you can use as a page market or a decoration.
Once this 2 hour hands-on workshop is done, your chauffeur-guide will bring you back to your hotel in Bayeux.
Attention: A supplement will be added and modifications to the program will be made if pick up and drop off is not in Bayeux.
