Transportation from Paris to Mont St. Michel - car or train?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I, along with two children will be traveling from Paris to MSM on a Friday in August. Originally I had planned for us to take a train from Paris to Rennes that morning and then rent a car from the Rennes train station for the duration of our 3 days around Normandy. I thought we should rent the car outside of Paris to avoid needing to navigate Paris and any traffic delays leaving the city on a Friday. I'm now wondering if that is a valid concern worth the extra effort and money? We are staying in the 7th arrondissement. Should we just rent a car from in Paris and completely skip the train ride?

Thanks for any advice!
