Need help to visit Chateau d' Versailles


We will be visiting Versailles this September. We first want to visit Marie Antoinette's Estate and then the main Palace. Our Visit is scheduled on a Sunday. So expecting heavy rush. May you guys please help me to plan a trip likewise, like from which gate we should enter? should we take help of the train? From where actually the train departs (I know it is from Terrasse Nord of the Palace), but where is it actually situated and how to access it?

Please HELP!!

The easiest thing to do is take RER C from Paris to the stop Versailles Rive-Gauche Château de Versailles. Take a right coming out of the station and your first left on avenue de Paris and you'll see the château right in front of you.

To learn how to get around Paris (and to Versailles) by métro/bus/RER use www.ratp.fr. Here is a link to a route planner:


Here is an interactive map of the system:


Since parts of this website are only in French you can also use www.transilien.com or www.vianavigo.com. Via Navigo probably has the most complete English website. A good website to learn how to use public transport in Paris is www.parisbytrain.com.

Buy your tickets to Versailles ahead of time so you don't wait in line there, although there is still a security line. Everything you need to know about planning a visit to Versailles can be found n the official château website:


This page from the website has FAQ's, including most crowded and least crowded times:
