Mont St Michel France is a maze of skinny, winding streets that spiral upwards to the Abbey at the top. It is filled with shops, restaurants and cafes, most of them touristy.
Regardless, it is still a charming place to spend an afternoon, and the photos that you will get will be worth the excursion. Make sure to come back in the evening to get some iconic photos of the Abbey lit up at dusk. It will be a sight that you won’t soon forget.
