How to reach the Palace of Versailles easily ?
The castle of Versailles covers an area of 8.15 km2, so it is not in the heart of Paris but in the heart of Versailles. To get there from Paris, you can choose between several options.
For taking the train :
If you want to take the train from Paris you can take the RER C from the Musée d'Orsay, Invalides or Champs de Mars. It takes 40 minutes to get to the Versailles Château - Rive Gauche station, from there it's an additional 10 minute walk.
If you do not wish to return to Paris, there are also the Versailles Chantiers and Versailles Rive Droite stations.
For taking the bus :
For going to Versailles by bus, you have to go to the Pont de Sèvre stop, the terminus of the metro line 9. From there you can take the 171 bus to the Palace of Versailles.
To make things easier :
We proposed the package with the entrance fees for the castle but also the shuttle from Paris to Versailles starting from 18 Avenue De Suffren, 75015 Paris. The return trip is also included. With this option, you will enjoy a guided tour of the castle and its gardens.
Good to know :
The castle recommends that you do not bring your picnic as you will not be able to return with it. Moreover, for security reasons, it is important not to bring drones or selfie sticks into the castle.
The whole of the Palace of Versailles is equipped for people with reduced mobility.
