Mont St Michel France

Greetings all. I am requesting the travel advice of my fellow bimmerfesters.

My wife and I are planning a trip in May to Paris & the surrounding area, this will be our first trip to France. We plan to spend two days in Normandy, one day visiting Mont St Michel and then driving to the Loire Valley, and then two days in the Loire Valley before spending time in Paris.

I have very mixed feelings on Mont St Michel. While it is historically relevant and beautiful, I can't shake the feeling that it is a massive tourist trap. I have read that the crowds can be extremely bad (we will visit on a weekday) and that it is overly commercialized. I am leaning towards dropping Mont St Michel and spending additional time at the Loire Valley or visiting Giverny.

I appreciate your opinions and advice!
