For stunning medieval architecture that is surprisingly intact and well preserved, visit Mont Saint-Michel. You'll be amazed by the abbey's staggering architectural marvels dating back to the Roman Empire, as well as the visible time progression of this massive megastructure, which takes you on a journey towards more Gothic styles. The monastery and abbey are at the very top of the town, supplying panoramic views of the entire island and surrounding waters. You can book a guided tour or, if you prefer to wander on your own, pick up an audio guide in English. The welcome center also offers a free printed brochure that makes a great souvenir.

  • It is very advisable to purchase the tickets in advance. You'll pass straight. Although then it's not well specified whether or not you can skip the queues. The employees are friendly and will help you

  • Mont Saint Michel is bound to see if you pass in the area like the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The place is very beautiful but obviously there are a lot of people and everything is paid for: 14 euros of parking for the day, 10 euros per entrance to the abbey, 18 euros per entrance to make all the museums ... Fortunately we had the picnic to avoid having to pay for a restaurant (very expensive restaurant also) but no place to picnic. No explanations in the alleys, shops, and shops... In addition to very complicated access, you sometimes have to wait for more than an hour in the sun of the shuttle buses. For the way we managed to get a shuttle but not on the way back: to walk 3 km in the heat with young children is average in terms of organization ... To see once in a lifetime
