What’s inside your Mont Saint Michel Map?
The best attractions
From outside Mont Saint Michel, it will seem like there is only one attraction. But in fact, you’ll soon realize upon entry that there are a lot of things to see! Our Mont Saint Michel Map lists down the top 4 attractions in Mont Saint Michel that you must not miss while you’re there!
Where to eat
You’ll be surprised to find that there are actually a lot of restaurants inside and outside the walled city of Mont Saint Michel. The restaurants you’ll find mostly serve traditional French food, popular brasserie fare, and of course, the ubiquitous fast-food for an easy cop-out. Our Mont Saint Michel Map aims to do better than just showing you what’s there. We’ve marked down our 3 favorite restaurants inside the city that are sure to match every traveller’s preferences.
Where to stay
Getting to Mont Saint Michel from Paris by car is about a 4 hour drive and not many people are as eager to drive back. You’ll realize as soon as you step past the magnificent walls that you’ll want to complete the experience by staying overnight. Though there are a few options for where to stay inside Mont Saint Michel, we think that it is 10 times better to be staying around Mont Saint Michel Bay. That way, you have the absolute pleasure of enjoying the view of the abbey all lit up before you go to sleep. Another great thing is that it’ll be the first thing you see when you wake up. The abbey looks like it’s floating on air when it’s covered by fog!

Where to shop
If you’ve made it all the way to Mont Saint Michel, make sure you don’t leave without a precious souvenir to remember your trip by. There are plenty of souvenir shops inside the walled city were you can buy delicious edibles like the famous butter cookies but we’ve got an even better suggestion for a souvenir that will last longer than an afternoon of snacking with tea or coffee.
