• Mont St Michel from Le Havre (12 hours) Description

    Your private, licensed driver-guide will pick you up at your ship at 07:30 in a luxurious, air-conditioned Mercedes minivan. After a 2 hour drive you will arrive to your unforgettable destination: the Mont St Michel.

    Many writers have tried to define the "Marvel of the Occident", some say that it is to the sea what the pyramid of Keops is to the desert, some describe it as an imaginary manor-house, stupefying as a dream palace, others say that is is not dry land and yet not the sea. Surrounded by the sea with one of the highest tidal ranges in the world the Mont St. Michel is simply unique.

    After a brunch at Carrouges Castle (summer) or on the Mont St. Michel (winter), the tour begins with a guided visit of the Abbey founded by Aubert at the beginning of the 8th Century and that became a major cultural and pilgrimage centre during the middle ages . You will admire the Romanesque Church, the Gothic "Marvel" with the monk's Cloisters and Refectory, the Knights Room, the Guest Room, the Undercroft, the Refectory, as well as various chapels : St. Stephen, St.Martin, Our Lady Underground, St. Mary Magdalene, Crypt of the 30 Candles.

    After lunch (on the Mont St. Michel, I recommend "La Mère Poulard"), stroll through the steep-sided narrow streets of the town and its ramparts.

    Around 16:00 you will take the road heading back to Le Havre. You will arrive around 19:00 at your ship to continue your Cruise.
