    What to Expect
    With your prepaid voucher in hand, make your way to the Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel in the island city of Mont-Saint-Michel in lower Normandy. Skip the long entry lines and proceed directly inside to embark on your self-guided tour. Pick up one of the included tour booklets, available in 11 languages, which will help you in your independent exploration. 

    Walk through the areas of the Abbey, on which construction began in the 10th century. See the eclectic architectural influences, including Gothic, Roman, and West Roman styles. 

    Visit the clerical and military buildings typical to an abbey of this time period, including the monks' ambulatory, the refectory, the cloister, and the church. Stroll through the gardens, known since the 12th century as Merveille, or the marvel, which in 1874 was listed as an historic monument due to its resistance to English attacks during the 14th and 15th centuries.

    Well known for its beauty, we have spent 4-5 hours in Mont St. Michel. Worthy and educational. Public facilities like restrooms are adequate.

    We are so lucky to have a chance to visit this place on such a beautiful day and this place is 4 hours from Paris one way. We did it on our last day in Paris.
