A one day trip to Brittany and Mont St. Michel from Paris.
Price: Tour and Abbey ticket only: $145.00, Tour, Abbey ticket, and 2nd class rail ticket on TGV: $299.00, Tour, Abbey ticket, and 1st class rail ticket on TGV: $399.00.
Departing from Gare Montparnasse, bound ultimately for Mont St. Michel, you’ll be covering over 400 kilometers (259 miles) in around two and a half hours through pretty countryside via TGV rail. En route, take a relaxing break in the meal car for a snack.
Upon arrival in St. Malo, your driver will be waiting to take you on a tour of the sights of Brittany's emerald coast. You’ll finish the day in Rennes, boarding the TGV for a quick two hour ride to Paris. (Why choose us instead of the large tour bus?)
Lunch is not included, but ample time is provided at Mont St. Michel for a quick or leisurely lunch.
First Stop: St. Malo
The walled city of St. Malo retains a medieval atmosphere, with cobbled streets and half timbered houses. The dramatic Brittany tides, highest recorded in Europe, (a 30 foot gain in as many minutes!) can be experienced at the sea wall or with a walk along the flats at low tide.
Second Stop: Mont Saint Michel
A medieval monk was visited by a seemingly impossible vision from the archangel Michael. The angel instructed him to build a monastery atop a rock formation along the Brittany/Normandy coastline. Many centuries later, Mont St. Michel, as it now stands, was completed. Mont St. Michel is now the second-most-visited site in France, after the Eiffel Tower.
Final Stop: Dinan
Along the river Rance, just a few miles from St. Malo, is the preserved medieval village of Dinan. Dinan was an important trading town during the Middle Ages. Today it is filled with charming cafes and shops.
