Description

Spend more time in Mont Saint-Michel than any other visitors with this day trip on high-speed train. Tour the village and Monastery, then kick your shoes off and enjoy an exclusive tour of the surrounding bay with a certified naturalist guide.

It normally takes 5.5 hours to get to Mont Saint-Michel from Paris. You’ll make the trip in just under three using a high speed train from Montparnasse to Rennes, then a private minibus and private shuttle. Such a short travel time ensures you a full 7 hours to enjoy one of Europe’s most picturesque towns.

Depending on the tide, you’ll head out into the bay as soon as you arrive with a specially certified guide to show you the geology and ecology that created this natural wonder. You’ll also see some quicksand and get to take some pictures of the town and abbey from the absolute best vantage point.

Back in the village,  enjoy a two-hour tour of the Medieval city streets and fortified walls, then break for lunch and step inside the abbey to soak in the Gothic architecture and its chequered history as both a place of religious pilgrimage and a prison. Your guide isn’t able to follow you inside but they will brief you on the building’s history and what to keep an eye out for before you go inside with your audio guide.

At the end of the tour, hop back on the bus, then train, for the journey back to Paris, content that you have seen every corner of this charming town.
