Mont Saint Michel was not a place to stay for a long time as it is a small island.It was a bit disappointing considering what I had imagined, as it never surrounded in the water during the day.Whether it is a place to spend five Hours each way is questionable. However, the scene from the distance was beautiful.

Mont Saint Michel in the summer was still very crowded and a little difficult to walk, but it was a wonderful experience to make up for it. You can fully enjoy the beauty of the exterior and interior of Mont Saint Michel, as well as the surrounding souvenir shops, restaurants, and fast food such as ice cream. However, restaurants need to be careful about business hours. I wanted to eat the famous omelet, but it was out of business hours ... Also, the trip from Paris is extremely long. You can have a light meal with one break on the way back and forth, but it is better to bring water and light meals into the bus. I was able to stay in Mont-Saint-Michel for about three and a half hours, but if you are thinking of having lunch, you should think that you have almost no time to spare. Most of the time is gone just by visiting Mont Saint Michel.

Our trip to Mont St. Michel was great. There were gorgeous views from the top of the Church. It was really cool to see the old medieval Church that was created hundreds of years ago. I enjoyed learning about the history of Mont St. Michel and exploring the shops and restaurants in the town.
