Two new reports have blasted the way visitors are treated at Mont Saint-Michel – the most popular tourist attraction in France outside Paris and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Each year roughly 2.5 million people visit the stunning hilltop abbey of Mont Saint-Michel which stands just off the Normandy and Brittany coasts in north west France.
But those tourists could have it so much better, according to new reports which blast the treatment of visitors to the UNESCO World Heritage site.
Normandy’s social, economic and environmental council (CESER) as well as the region’s accounting body CRC have both listed reasons why Mont Saint-Michel needs to up its game.
The 19-page CESER report lists “a series of malfunctions and recurrent problems around the reception of tourists.”
