One of the pleasures of French travel, is riding the high speed TGV (Train a Grande Vitesse) rail line. Departing from Gare Montparnasse, bound ultimately for Mont St. Michel, you’ll be covering over 400 kilometers (259 miles) in around three quiet, non stop hours through pretty countryside. Enjoy reserved, non smoking seats. En route, take a relaxing break in the meal car for a snack.
Upon arrival in St. Malo, your driver will be waiting to take you on a tour of the sights of Brittany's emerald coast. The rocky Emerald Coast of Brittany awaits, offering timeless vistas, quaint historical towns, and the stunning achievement of the ancient monastery on a rock, Mont St. Michel. (Why choose us instead of the large tour bus?)
You’ll finish the day in Rennes, boarding the TGV for a quick two hour ride to Paris.
The walled city of St. Malo retains a medieval atmosphere, with cobbled streets and half timber houses. The dramatic Brittany tides, highest recorded in Europe, (a 30 foot gain in as many minutes!) can be experienced at the sea wall or with a walk along the flats at low tide. Oysters are a local specialty. Click here for more information about St. Malo.
Along the river Rance, just a few miles from St. Malo, is the preserved medieval village of Dinan. As a river town, the village was an important focus of trade in the Middle Ages. Rather than along the river banks and in the flats, village houses and shops climb high up into the hills, making the town ready to defend in case of attack - be it by pirates or invaders.
Medieval monk Aubert (later the sainted bishop of Avranches) was visited by a seemingly impossible vision from archangel Michael, instructing him to build a monastery atop a rock cut off by tides twice a day. Over many centuries, his vision was made reality, and Mont St. Michel is now the second-most-visited site in France, after the Eiffel Tower.
