Then you will climb to the top of the rock where you will visit the different rooms of the abbey and you will have the chance to understand what was the life of a monk in the "City of Books", through different wars over centuries.

We will first drive 1h30 to Mont-Saint-Michel.

Mont Saint Michel is the most visited site in Normandy and one of the most visited sites in France. The first construction on the rock was built in 708.
A few decades later, it became a major pilgrimage site for all Christians in the world. Thanks to the work of the religious community on the Mont, the site was seen as an intellectual reference in Europe where thousands of books, manuscripts and charters were written.
In the 19th century, the importance of Mont Saint Michel was in decline and it became a prison after the French Revolution in 1789. From 1793 until 1863, the site had the worst reputation and was nicknamed the Bastille of the seas… The building suffered from the lack of maintenance during that time and almost disappeared after the French stopped using it as a prison. Fortunately, it was saved from destruction and many architects renovated it from then until present day.
After the visit, we will drive back to Bayeux 1h30 .
