Mont Saint Michel
Normandy France

The Mont Saint Michel belongs to the Normandy west part of France. One of the most visited places in the world.

After Saint Malo, the Mt St Michel is really not too far, nearly 45 minutes with car.

There is no direct train from Paris. it's better to take the TGV to Rennes and after take the bus to the Mont Saint Michel.

The only concern is it could be very busy in the summer. But It's worth it!
