Enjoy convenient pick-up from the Le Havre cruise terminal for this private shore excursion to Mont St-Michel. After a scenic drive of roughly 2 hours, watch for the spectacular abbey on the horizon, rising from its island perch in the bay.
Climb the cobbled streets of the village of Mont St-Michel, winding your way up to the 8th-century Benedictine abbey, and follow your guide on a tour of the impressive place. Learn about the abbey's history and architecture, how it was originally a monastery dedicated to the Archangel St Michael and then later used as a prison and fortress. Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the country's most easily recognized landmarks.
Explore the cloister of the church and enjoy the incredible views from atop the ramparts, built during the Hundred Years' War in the 14th and 15th centuries. Watch the tide flow in and out around Mont St-Michel, making it an island regularly throughout the day.
Follow your guide through the village of Mont St-Michel, where you'll have time to browse through local shops or pause for a bite in a restaurant (own expense) before you're escorted back to the vehicle for the trip back to Le Havre and your ship.
