Mont Saint Michel France Private Tour Description Summary

Meet your private guide at the entry of Mont Saint Michel. When you will arrive at the entry, you will see wooden steps: your private guide will be waiting for you there. Take a walk with your private guide through the narrow cobblestone streets and along the ramparts of the old village of Mont Saint Michel France. Mont Saint Michel has been an emblematic place for mankind for more than 1300 years. This granite rocky islet in the middle of one of the most important tides in Europe was designated as a place of prayer after the Archangel Michael’s appearance.

Mont Saint Michel France Private Tour Detailed Description

Follow your guide and listen what the old stones have to tell. Mont Saint Michel probably dates back to the year 708 and according to the legend, it is the Archangel Michael that ordered that a monastery sould be built at the very top of this pointy island. For centuries to come, the island would be a strategic stronghold for the Bretons and French, not even conquered by the English during the Hundred Years’ War. Mont Saint-Michel France was built in a strong rock that measures 84 meters tall. It is pure granite and so hard that it has resisted the passage of time. Its construction has changed many times through the centuries. From the Middle Ages until the 19th century, religious and military architecture styles have combined to make it unique to such an extent that some even consider it the Eighth Wonder of the World.

From the entrance of the medieval village you will walk up to the famous abbey. Then on the way, your private guide will tell you some fascinating histories and anecdotes. After that, as you walk through those medieval streets, you will feel like you are traveling back in time. You will see dungeons that will give you a feeling of mystery, especially when you know that it was also used as a prison. Certainly, Mont Saint Michel France is one of the most interesting places someone can know and visit.
