Normandy and Brittany are among the most beautiful and popular holiday destinations in France. The interesting combination of harsh coastal scenery with romantic fishing villages and world-famous sights characterise this fantastic round trip. Another highlight is the visit to the island of Jersey. It is considered to be the sunniest of the British Isles and is famous for its extensive beaches. Due to the mild climate you will find an interesting mixture of Mediterranean vegetation on the island, such as palm trees, dragon trees, camellias and wild orchids.

4th day excursion Saint-Malo and Mont-Saint-Michel
Breakfast. Today you will visit St. Malo with a tour guide. Like a stone ship, Saint-Malo proudly stretches its fortress walls into the sea in the Rance estuary. The facades and towers towering from the fortifications give the city its unique silhouette. The battlements offer a magnificent view of the city. Afterwards you drive to the famous Mont Saint Michel, the "miracle of the Occident". For three years, Mont Saint Michel has been connected to the mainland only by a bridge to prevent the bay from further silting up. You park on the mainland and change to local buses. Mont St. Michel is a unique Romanesque-Gothic fortified church situated on a granite rock in the Wadden Sea of the English Channel. It is possible to visit the interior of the abbey (admission approx. 8€ not included in the tour price). Return to the Hotel La Cite in Saint-Malo and dinner together.
