Mont Saint Michel, whose namesake bay boasts
one of the world’s highest tidal ranges, is
a truly memorable sight. Your privately
guided tour of Mont St. Michel begins at the
Abbey, founded at the turn of the 8th century.
The Abbey became a major cultural and pilgrimage
center during the Middle Ages. You will visit
the Romanesque Church, the Gothic "Marvel" with
the monk's cloisters and refectory, the Knights
Room, the Guest Room, the Undercroft, the Refectory,
and more. The tour also includes several chapels:
St. Stephen, St. Martin, Our Lady Underground,
St. Mary Magdalene, and the 11th-century Crypt
of the 30 Candles.
Next on your private shore excursion from Le Havre takes you on a tour of the
charming port town of Honfleur. At the heart
of Honfleur, the old dock is full of character,
from its old crooked-faced slate-fronted houses
to the art galleries and cafes located in converted
salt stores. Eugène Boudin and Claude Monet
were among the famous impressionist painters
who drew inspiration from the Honfleur port.
You will have time to visit a few sights in
town, perhaps St. Catherine's Church, which
is the largest wooden church in France, built
by the town’s shipbuilders in the late 15th
century. The Eugene Boudin Museum, set in a
19th century chapel, will be of interest to
art lovers. The town’s farmer’s and flea markets
are also fun places to stroll and shop (inquire
for days and times).
