If the world had seven wonders today, this place would be one of them. It's a wonderful natural location, and a place full of legends, history, and religious significance. Even if it's quite touristic nowadays, it is pleasant and easily accessible using the parking and...More

Like so many beautiful things one see's pictures of, the real thing, up close and personal is even more stunning. A total must see.

We were 3 couples who took the free shuttle bus from our site to this iconic and wonderfully visual Northern France landmark. It had far more shops, bars, restaurants than we expected and whilst not cheap worth a stop and sit down after trekking around...More

Been wanting to visit for years. You can keep Paris, this should be on top of your France list. For me, the best part was everything above the Grande Rue level with all the shops and crowds. We were too late to visit the abbey...More

This is our second visit in three years and we couldn't come to Normandy without seeing it again. This is really a special place in my heart because I love France so much. The abbey, church, and cloister is a masterpiece of medieval Gothic architecture...More

This was on my bucket list and I wasn’t disappointed. Ride the free shuttle bus from the car park over to the island and enter the town through medieval gates. The walkway through town is narrow and swarming with people. Most are on their way...More

I am a world traveler and have seen many beautiful places in the world. Mont Saint-Michel is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The tide is very important here and the island is not always an island. Tourist buses leave...More

We've been there for an evening and the morning after. It's one of THE most beautiful places we've ever been. We strongly recommend visiting the abbey, and taking a tour (it's included in the entrance fee). The tour is thorough and is 1.5 hour long....More

Each time I return to the mont Saint-Michel each time I’m subjugué by this mix of beauty and austerity. The walk on the remparts at sunset or sunrise is really worth it, looking at the alway changing tide. What an amazing site.
