Experience two amazing historical sites in one day.
Upon arrival in Bayeux via direct train from Paris, you will be met at the station platform by your personal guide for the day.
An hour or so drive brings you to the incredible abbey at Mont St. Michel. This wonder of the world, the second-most-visited site in France besides the Eiffel Tower, dates to the 11th century. 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.
The restored wetlands around the Mont (no more parking lots and tacky signs) dramatically evoke the original medieval view of the Mont. You will walk those famous 300 steps with your guide up to the monastery, enjoy the incredible view, soak up the history and then depart for the coastline drive to Omaha Beach.
En route you will choose a lunch spot (cost not included.)
While a D’Day highlight tour can take two days, your afternoon will still connect you with highlights of the incredible story of June 6, 1944. You will walk on Omaha Beach and learn the exploits of the American invasion force. You’ll get a good view of the Pointe du Hoc and hear the story of the famous Ranger climb into German guns. Your final visit will be at the American Cemetery and Visitor Center, timed for Taps whenever possible. You will return to Bayeux in time for the evening train to Paris.
