Day 5,Beautiful Brittany: Mont St Michel & Cancale - Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel

Meet your driver guide and start your exploration of two iconic sites of Brittany, offering an idea of the soul and heritage of the original region. You will start with one of the symbols of France, Mt. Saint Michel.

The bay is subjected to some of the most extreme tidal variations globally, putting on an ever-changing yet always sublime show. The mount became an important Christian pilgrimage site when Aubert, bishop of the nearby hilltop town of Avranches, declared that the Archangel Michael himself had pressed him to build a church atop the island just out to sea. Later you will reach Cancale. Mention Cancale to a Frenchman or a foodie, and the instant reply will be 'oysters'; the marvellous molluscs have been cultivated in this charming fishing village for centuries. You will also enjoy breathtaking views over the Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel and scenic walks around the coast. Overnight in St Malo.
