  • This place is absolutely amazing and well worth the visit. Make sure you visit the abbey. Do the walk on foot instead of sitting on a rammed bus.

  • Mont Saint-Michel. 🇫🇷 is the spectacular mountain located in the sea on the border of Normandy and Brittany. 🤎Next to the abbey a small village has arisen at the foot of the abbey. Perhaps the most spectacular of Mont Saint-Michel is the view of the mountain from afar. Because the nearby landscape is quite flat, you can see the mountain from afar. Mother soul alone in a great plain of sand and sea suddenly an abbey rises out of the waves.
  • Truly a world wonder. It took our group of friends around 5 hours to conclude our visit, and there still was a lot more to see. Extremely crowded by tourists, but for a good reason. This is a must see once in a lifetime place, i felt like kid in a fairytale while exploring. P.S. wait for the buses when you leave, the line is very long but its better than getting a sun burn from trying to cover the distance by foot.
