Discover for yourself what attracts more than three and a half million tourists and pilgrims each year with this unique full-day private tour including a passionate local guide.
Starting from a visit to the Abbey of the Mont St Michel walking 625 steps, you'll then have time for lunch with a spectacular view of the bay before learning about the village of the Mont St Michel. Next, you'll view the bay of the Mont St Michel and stop in Avranches to read the medieval manuscripts of the Abbey of the Mont St Michel.
Then, before returning to Caen, you'll first discover how church bells were made in Villedieu-les-Poeles and visit the village that has been specializing in copper goods, cooking pans, and pots for 1000 years now.
Once you've returned to Caen you'll feel mystic energy, be fascinated by the medieval historical stories you have heard, and have had an experience you will never forget.
