Granville to Mont Saint Michel

by VDElvis Online Now May 31, 2011 at 8:30 PM

Hi there,

We will be at a wedding in Granville in early July and would like to visit Mont Saint Michel on one of our spare days. We're taking a train to Granville from Paris so we will not have a car.

Does anyone know the best way to get to MSM from Granville using train/bus? Is it a big hassle to get there without a car? If necessary I could look into renting a car, but if public transit is easy enough, I would prefer that.

Thanks in advance for any help!

    Elvis ! Am thinking that you can get transport to PONTORSON which is the nearest railway station to Mont St Michel (about 10kms) then take a local bus service.

    The train times and connection can be found on :

    (I think the quickest journey is one hour from Granville to Pontorson with a change at Folligny but check locally )


    and the local bus can be found on:

    of course you may find that in Granville there is some local tour bus going so enquire at tourism office.

    Just to add a little to what Nige has said above. He's right that you cannot get a bus from Granville to MSM, only the train.
    At Pontorson station you'll need the line no. 6 for MSM. You'll find the t/table here.mobi50.com/horaires_ligne/in...

    Just scroll and click on the 6.
