Advance on-line tickets to the Mont St Michel Abbey

We will be staying on the island in September, arriving at night and sightseeing the following morning.

Is it a good idea to buy tickets to the Abbey in advance? If we buy the tickets in advance, do we cut any entrance line?

The website does not seem to allow for booking a tour or audio guide and the ticket is not for a specific day just a general 1 year admission. There is a hefty premium to buy them on line so I am wondering if it is worth it.

I'd appreciate any information from someone who has had experience with this.

Thanks in advance!

1. Re: Advance on-line tickets to the Mont St Michel Abbey

When we went last year, we arrived late afternoon the one day, visited the Mont that evening to wander around, then returned the next morning to see the Abbeye. We got there early, right when it opened, and there was hardly any line for buying tickets. We had some of the Abbeye to ourselves at times. Quickly, however, the tour buses started to pull up and by the time we left at about 11:30 am, it was wall-to-wall people. This was in April very close to Easter.

So I would say if you can get yourselves up and moving early in the morning, no need to buy tickets ahead of time.

There is no need for advance tickets and the lines are not a problem but if you are sleeping on the Mont, most hotels sell tickets to the Abbey at a discounted price so ask them to sell you a ticket when you check in.
