This four day festive break takes in the best of Normandy and the Christmas market of Caen.
On day two, we visit the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel. The turrets, battlements and monastery of this iconic island won’t fail to impress as it seems to rise out of the water. From 6pm, it is lit up by festive illuminations - a must see!
Our excursions on day three combine history and Christmas markets. First, we visit Bayeux, the home of the famous tapestry (entrance not included) and a spectacular cathedral. Mid-afternoon, we journey to Caen for its Christmas markets which offer stalls selling handicrafts and hot food and drinks with a Gallic flavour. Each evening Caen’s town hall is lit up by an impressive illumination show.
