    To help me to placate my sister :( can someone please tell me the entrance fee for the Mont, after trawling around various sites I am unable to find the cost.
    It is the cost to enter the Mont I require, not the price of the Aire, many thanks.

    9 euros for the abbey, otherwise free. The bus service to and from the mainland is also free.

    If you're talking about the 'mudflats' parking ... nope, not since they decided to re-flood it.

    That new bridge is awful, yes lots of greenwash BS about it, but basically it looks like a motorway flyover so they can bus in tourists 24/7. A complete destruction of the place.:sick:

    I am sad to hear that. We saw the construction on Tour de France 2 or 3 years ago and thought it was going to be ugly then, I always like the idea of it being surrounded by water at high tide as in holy island Northumberland, the French love their statement bridges but perhaps should have left the old one.

    Reading the above I suppose you could park further away rather than use the official rip-off car park and then get your push bikes out as parking for these is free! Just one thing to remember though dogs are NOT allowed at all on the bus and I don't think you can actually cycle to the Mont so either have to go on foot or on the free shuttle bus (or pay for another means of transport).

    Yes sadly this flyover is so out of context with the the island, the surroundings and the history of the place. I am glad I saw it years ago when the old road was in place and saw the flyover being built when I went last.

    For info if you decide the walkis too long and want to use the bus , there are some excellent kennels availaible , inside/outside space , so shade in summer with water etc , much better than leaving in the van in summer .
    Normal pace about a 45 min walk from van parking to the mount .
    enjoy , some nice resturants there.
