Charming narrow street in Mont St Michel with lots of souvenir shops and restaurants. Walking along the street is like back in Medieval times. It can get very crowded during the day which might spoil your mood. The best time to visit is when all...More

Also not less famous is the “Grande Rue”, or Main Street, of Mont-Saint-Michel but is unlike any Main Street you're used to. Narrow and made out of stones, it is lined up on either side with houses, shops, imms and restaurants and houses who are...More

Walking up this street is a delight, there is plenty of restaurants, souvenir shops, and side pathways taking you to another place of interest.

During the day people are packed in so tight and it's hard to enjoy the beautiful old buildings amidst the souvenir stores and touristy creperies. Book a hotel room - it's worth the price - and wander these gorgeous old streets at night. Ethereal and...More

The La Grande Rue is "the road" up to the MSM abbey. It's medieval and the architecture is beautiful, but it's narrow and overcrowded and filled with touristy shops & restaurants. I recommend going up the rue to the abbey then coming back via the...More
