We were looking forward to visiting Mont-St-Michel which looks so impressive and quite amazing when seen from a distance. The first disappointment was that in order to reach our destination we had to park in the enormous parking area from which there was a fairly long walk to the shuttle bus taking people to Mont-St-Michel, passing some rather uninteresting shops, restaurants and hotels on the way. This walk was not something for the disabled, the elderly or people with small children. On arrival at Mont-St-Michel, we found the streets very crowded, it was a real push your way through the throng sort of situation. On the steep walk up to the Abbaye itself were many small touristy shops (some rather tacky), bars and restaurants. Basically, we decided to give the Abbaye a miss having done the steep walk andl instead enjoyed the view from the top which made it all worth while as you can see for miles.
I am sure on a quiet day this would be worth a visit, but we did not find it so in the tourist season.
