My friend and I joined the group tour visiting Mont Saint Micheal. We departed from Paris with a luxury air conditioned bus. What a wonderful journey we had! Just to admire the country side of France was breathtaking in itself. Mont Saint Michael is one of the most unique and iconic sights in the country. Mont Saint Micheal is a stunning medieval abbey that is built on a rocky island. This castle was built during the middle ages and has fascinating architecture dating back to the 8th century and is dedicated to Micheal the Arc Angel.
During your free time you can enjoy and make the most of it by walking around and visiting the local shops at the base of the castle. Here you can get souvenirs and choose from many wonderful restaurants! When you go up the steps of the castle the view gets better along the way. At the top you can see out into the Atlantic Ocean and really appreciate all the work that it must have taken to build such a massive castle. This is an amazing tour that you will never forget. The history of how the castle was built is really interesting and to be able to climb to the top of the castle and navigate through the different rooms was really memorable.
On your way home don’t forget to take a picture with Mont Saint Micheal in the back ground. When you are shopping for souvenirs you will also see a variety of local products from the Normandy region. This is where the crepe first became popular. Don’t miss the chance to taste a crepe with your favorite toppings along with a cold cider.
The good thing with this tour is everything is included. Entrance tickets, lunch, drinks, along with the guided tour in a luxury air conditioned bus. If you want to experience as I did, go and discover, you will have a great memories from this excursion!
