GREAT TOUR & the Importance of an EXPERIENCED Local Tour Guide
Aug 2019
Mont-Saint-Michel

As previously mentioned...OUTSTANDING local tour guide: LAURENT PESNEAUD. He was extremely knowledgeable, witty, professional and even gave up his own hotel room for members of his tour. Cannot say enough great communication skills of the man. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED the place "Abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel" along with his expertise...What a powerful combination. LAURENT has superb command of English and knows the history of "Abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel", and WWII.

Another Tower With History and a View
Jul 2019 • Couples
Just like the other numerous watch towers positioned on each side of Mont St Michel, this one offers panoramic views of the outdoor landscape and the surrounding sights. This is part of the Mont St Michel experience which is free, assuming you are not paying to enter the abbey.

Very nice tower in Mont-Saint-Michel
Aug 2018 • Family
Tour de l'Arcade is one of the some towers located in the wall, which surround the Mont-Saint-Michel, in Normandy, in the North of France. If you visit this place, you will enter for the main entrance and you can see it at right. It is very beautiful and you can walk inside, when you enter in this religious fortress. From here, there are an incredible views of the surroundings and especially the ocean when it arrive here.
(see also Abbaye du Mont-St-Michel and Baie du Mont-St-Michel)

A prominent tower
Sep 2017
This is one of the first towers you see when entering the Mont St Michel. The French flag makes a very nice welcome to visitors, and the tower is impressive.

ARCADE TOWER HAS A ROOF
Mar 2018 • Couples
Tour de L’Arcade is one of the 2 tours that protected the King’s Gate. The King’s tower being the other one. The Arcade tour can be seen from outside the abbey just to the right of the Tri-color. The tower is still covered.

Amazing place to see
Sep 2016 • Solo
Tower of arcades is the most interesting among all the others. It has a unique architecture and let you imagine how it was in the medieval time.
I would say all the fortification wall and the towers are worth visiting. Be sure to stay overnight and explore these attractions without so many tourists.

Intriguing Towers along Mount St. MIchel Fortification
Jul 2015 • Couples
By all means, walk along the island fortification where you will avoid the crowds below and be treated to numerous towers such as tour de L'Arcade. Each provides stunning vistas across the bay.

Picturesque tower w Flag ....
Nov 2014 • Couples
This is one of the many fortification towers that you'll see when approaching Mont St. Michel. You can identify it by the French flag - tricolor - flying from its top. Has a funny roofed structure above it, but that only adds to the fun and mystery of this jewel ....

Tower with the flag
Aug 2015 • Couples
This tower is situated in the lower part of the Mont-Saint-Michel hill and on the right side of the entrance. It is very popular as a background for taking pictures because of the national flag on top of it.

Great view over the bay.
Jun 2014 • Friends
Just like the other numerous watch towers positioned on each side of the fort offer panoramic views of the outdoor landscape truly unforgettable. For those who do not intend to spend € 9 to reach the top terrace on top of the church, this is an exceptional lookout point, with a little 'luck and at low tide you will have in front of you one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. A lunar landscape for miles.
