MONT SAINT-MICHEL DAY TRIP FROM PARIS WITH LUNCH AT MERE POULARD AND ABBEY ENTRANCE

From

295 €


Duration

~ 13 H

Prepare for an early morning departure from Paris to make the most of the day, and enjoy the scenery of the French countryside on the roughly 3.5-hour drive to Mont Saint-Michel, perched on a small rocky islet near the mouth of the Couesnon River on France’s Normandy coast. Dating back to the 10th century, the distinctive island community was named one of the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1979 and is one of the most photogenic landmarks in France.

After arriving on the island, begin with a lunch stop at La Mère Poulard restaurant, famous for its fluffy, decadent omelettes. Watch chefs at work in the kitchen, and then enjoy a delicious 4-course lunch surrounded by pictures of the many celebrities who have dined here since 1888. See Itinerary for a sample lunch menu.

In the afternoon, visit the magnificent Mont Saint-Michel Abbey that caps the island, offering spectacular views of the bay and coastline. Built by Benedictine monks beginning in the 10th century, the Abbey has survived the elements and manmade conflicts throughout the centuries and is a symbol a French national pride. Enjoy a bit of free time to wander the island’s narrow backstreets and shops before the return drive to Paris, where the 13-hour tour concludes at the Arc de Triomphe in the evening.
