Understand how public transport works in Paris & What kind of public transport links exists between Paris and Versailles ?

There are 14 Metro lines and 5 RER train lines. Metros lines are identified on maps by numbers and colours. RER lines are identified by letters. See below the Metro & RER Lines.

TRAIN RER C

List of the RER & metro line of Paris

Metro lines serve Paris and the RER is a train system which serves Paris and its suburbs. The Palace of Versailles being in the suburbs, about 12 miles away from the center of Paris, to get Versailles you will need to get the RER C. The RER C is a train which will take you directly to the Palace of Versailles : on the transport map it is the yellow line which stretches from East to West of Paris and runs alongside the Seine River.

How far is Versailles from Paris ? Depending on where your hotel is located, it will take you between 60 to 90 minutes to travel from Paris to Versailles by train. Most of the time you reach the train station of Versailles in 1 hour.

Follow this step by step guide below. It is the cheapest way to get from Paris to Versailles.

Step 1: Check the nearest metro or train station from your hotel in Paris

Check the metro station nearest to your hotel on google Map.

Enter the address of your hotel on google Map and check where the closest metro station is. You need to find the closest sign  from your hotel in Paris. You’ve found it ? Great! Go back on google Map, put your mouse on the metro station and the name of your nearest metro station will appear. Make a note of the name.

If the name of your nearest metro station is one of those indicated on the map of the RER C line, then you are lucky: no need to take the Metro. In this case, go directly to step 4.

Step 2: Buy tickets to reach Versailles Palace

Reaching Versailles by train is the cheapest option. From Paris, the total cost of a round trip to Versailles is 7,1€ per person all included. The métro and RER have common ticketing. Just go to your nearest métro station, and buy your tickets to Versailles-Château – Rive Gauche. The tickets will be good for the métro and the RER by whatever combination of métro or RER lines is the quickest route. You can use a machine or queue up for a human. All machines work in English. You just need to choose the right destination: « Versailles Château Rive Gauche » station and pay by cash or credit card your trip to Versailles. but if you use a machine be sure you get the correct Versailles station (there are three).

Keep in mind: the machine will print you 2 tickets per person. One ticket by way. So keep the second ticket for your return from Versailles to Paris.

Once you get yours tickets, you can start your trip to the Castle…

Step 3: Check the metro line to reach the REC C train

Now that you know the name of your nearest metro station, you will need to find which metro line will get you from your metro station to the closest RER C station: . Sometimes the line of your nearest metro will take you directly to the RER C train and other times you will need to change Metro lines to get to a RER C station.

Look at this Metro RER Map and find the metro station you just checked on Google map. Then find the RER C : it is the yellow line along the Seine. Now, figure out the metro lines you need to get to the nearest RER C station. Remember :  Metro Lines are identified by numbers. At the station, direction of travel will be indicated by both the number and the destination. You have 2 end destinations for each line : one on each side of the line. The end destination indicates which direction you have to follow to get to the station you need.

Step 4: Find the right RER C train to get to Versailles

Once you have arrived at an RER C station, get on the right train which goes to Versailles Château / Rive Gauche:

The RER C train which runs south of the Seine is divided into 3 parts (check the map of the RER Line C to Versailles) : one to the East of Paris (station : RER C Champ de mars, Pont de l’Alma, Invalides, Musee d’Orsay, St-Michel, Paris Austerlitz, Bibliotheque Francois Mitterand), one to the West of Paris (station: RER Porte de clichy, Pereire Levallois, Neuilly Porte Maillot, Avenue Foch, RER C Avenue Henri Martin, Boulainvilliers) and one to Versailles Chateau / Rive Gauche (RER C Javel, Pont du Garigliano, Issy…).
You need to take this last one to get to the Palace of Versailles: Javel, Pont du Garigliano, Issy… direction … Versailles !

You have different options depending on where you catch the RER C train from:

  • Case A : If you catch the RER C train at Javel or at Pont du Garigliano or in the East of Paris (station : RER C Champ de mars, RER C Pont de l’Alma, RER C Invalides, RER C Musee d’Orsay, RER C St-Michel, RER C Paris Austerlitz, RER C Bibliotheque Francois Mitterand), then you are lucky, it is the easiest case:
    Just take the RER C Direction Versailles rive gauche and stop to Versailles Rive gauche Chateau de Versailles. No need to change of train. It is a good point!
  • Case B : if you catch the RER C train in the northwestern part of Paris (station: RER C St Ouen, RER C Porte de clichy, RER C Pereire Levallois, RER C Neuilly Porte Maillot, RER C Avenue Foch, RER C Avenue Henri Martin or RER C Boulainvilliers), in this case, you’ll need to change of train. Pay attention : The RER C line forks out, so make sure to change at the station Champs de Mars/Tour Eiffel to catch the Versailles Rive Gauche line. To Sum up, from your RER C station, catch the train direction Pont de Rungis – Aeroport d’Orly  and change at the station Champs de Mars Tour Eiffel. Then catch the RER C train direction to Versailles Rive Gauche / Chateau de Versailles and your stop is the last one on the line.

Step 5: Walk from Versailles train station to the Palace of Versailles

Versailles Train station

Once you have arrived at Versailles Station, the Palace of Versailles is only a short walk away.

The Palace of Versailles is only a 13-minutes walk away from the train station. Pick an exit and follow the signs to the Chateau de Versailles. You can check this Google map itinerary from the station Versailles Rive Gauche to Chateau Versailles to see the short walk from the station to the Chateau.

Now that you are arrived at Chateau de Versailles, you can enjoy the beautiful gardens of Versailles. To prepare your visit, double check the map of the Versailles Palace.

Our nearest metro station appears to be the St. Placide station.

Do I need to be careful of split referred to on this site?

    • Hi Ron,

      Instead of traveling by RER C train, I suggest you to take a Transilien line N train from Montparnasse main railway station which will take you directly to Versailles – Chantiers train station in Versailles. Montparnasse is very close to your hotel. It will be much easier for you. You can check this page: Montparnasse to Versailles

  • Hi Xavier,
    Thank you so much for your patience answering to everyone and such a valuable information for travelers. I will be in Paris on April with my 10 yrs old son and I just realized that the day we are planning to go to Versailles is April 9th, which is the same day of the International Marathon. I assume that the city will be crazy crowded and not easy to transit. I will stay at Paris Rivoli Hotel which I believe is on the same path of the runners. Do you think it could be an issue? Any suggestion you may give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 🙂
    From Miami.

    Répondre
    • Hello Susana from Miami,

      It is a good question. The day of the Marathon, plenty streets are closed. We may tour to versailles but it is really complicated and we may be blocked. If you can choose another day, it is better. Otherwise, start the tour at 8am from your hotel. At this time, normally, the streets shouldn’t be blocked.

      Have a good day,

  • I know a lot of people are paying money to get to Versailles by tour or taxi, etc.. I’m sure that most people already know this, but for those of you that don’t, Google maps gives you the exact way to get to Versailles from wherever you are in Paris. All you have to do is go to Google maps on your phone, put in Palace Versailles, select directions and choose the icon for public transportation. When you do that it tells you exactly how to walk to the nearest station. What train to take, what direction to take it, how many stops, what train to refer to etc.
    This will take you all the way to the Versailles station. Then walk up to the palace of versailles and enjoy. Hope this helps.

  • Hi, I was wondering if I would be able to get the Versailles by taking the Train at Gare Montparnasse. That is one of the options that googlemaps is giving me, but I don’t see that as a Train line in the helpful guide above. I know there are many ways, but just wanted to see if you knew if this was an option.

    The N train at Gare Montparnasse gets me to Gare de Versailles-Chantiers in 1 stop, does this seem right?

    Thank you
    Jason

  • Hello, on your full day tour with transport to Versailles, on a Saturday, will we be able to see the fountains with music? Will we get to see things in the Chateau that would not be possible with just an audio guide? Thank you, Andrea

    • Hello Andrea,
      yes the musical fountains of Versailles work on Saturday during spring and summer. You need to get in touch with me by email to get more details.
      Best

  • Thanks so much! This is very informative, but can we buy tickets the day before? Or, we have to buy tickets on the same day we are going to Versailles?

  • Thanks for the clear information about the train from Paris to Versailles. However, I can’t find a train timetable for line C anywhere online. I need to know what time the trains run to and from Paris to Versaille on a Sunday in March. Can you please help me?
