Normandy's Mont St Michel
Day 3 of my Normandy Advent Calendar sharing my favourite things about Normandy. Mont St Michel is right at the top of my list of all that I love about Normandy. Yes, it can get busy during the summer holidays but it's to be expected as it's a UNESCO world heritage site. However, many people visit the restaurants, bars and tourist shops in the main street without venturing up to the abbey. When you get up to the abbey, there are less people and you can avoid the crowds by taking a quieter route. There's something magical about Mont St Michel – particularly when you catch your first glimpse of it from a distance. As you get closer, the excitement grows. They abbey is definitely worth a visit but an audio guide is recommended.
